Grants of up to $5,000 to Missouri nonprofit organizations, local agencies, and educational institutions to advance education in eligible regions. Programs must serve children from preschool age through post-secondary. Funding areas of interest include educational innovation, support for at-risk youth, and collaborative projects. Eligible organizations serve the communities of Eastern Jackson County (defined as East of I-435), suburban Jackson County, and Cass County communities.

THCF is committed to supporting the nonprofit community, and it recognizes the financial and operational strain that the COVID-19 pandemic has placed on nonprofits. Therefore, the Foundation will continue to accept applications for general operating support through the competitive grantmaking programs.

Eligible expenses include equipment (i.e. computer hardware), general operating support (i.e. salaries and consulting fees), and program support (i.e. supplies, computer software, curriculum). Projects may be new projects, currently existing ones, or renewals of previously awarded grants.
