Grants to Kansas nonprofit organizations and educational, governmental, and religious institutions in eligible regions to improve the local quality of life.

Focus areas include health and human services, education, environment, the arts, including visual and performance, and spirituality. Applications are open to a variety of community issues and target populations. Eligible organizations serve the residents of Washington County.

The Foundation offers the following types of support:

  • Project or program support: Supports specific projects or programs that are often linked to an organization’s service
  • Operating or general support: Supports the work of an organization from administrative expenses to program costs
  • Endowments: A permanent gift to be invested to provide income for continued support for an organization
  • Seed money: To establish or initiate a new project, program or organization. Seed money can cover salaries and other operating expenses of a new project (also known as start-up funds).
  • Capacity building: Activities that strengthen an organization and help it fulfill its mission either through staff and equipment, new building or renovation, publications, training, and convening.
  • Capital: Supports construction or renovation of a facility

Although the Board will consider a request for funding that is the same or similar to a previously approved grant, preference will be given to new and innovative grant requests.
