Grants to Missouri nonprofit organizations for activities that impact the local community in eligible locations. Funding is intended to support programs for underserved populations in the focus areas of educational, health, and human services. Special consideration is given to charitable organizations serving the needs of children or older adults. Funding is restricted to organizations in Springfield and surrounding Southwest Missouri.

  • Education. The Foundation believes that quality education is fundamental to success and is essential to the continued wellbeing of the community. Consequently, the Foundation is interested in systemic school improvement, particularly in the areas of management and teacher quality; academic programs that address the needs of disadvantaged children; and efforts to better connect schools with their communities. Specifically, funding for programming that:
    • Promotes effective teaching
    • Improves the academic achievement of, or expands educational opportunities for, disadvantaged students
    • Improves governance and management
    • Strengthens nonprofit organizations, school leadership, and teaching
    • Bolsters strategic initiatives of area colleges and universities.
  • Health. The Foundation pays special attention to the needs of society's most vulnerable people, including low-income children and their families, frail older adults, adults with disabilities, the homeless, and those with debilitating diseases and illnesses. The Foundation funds programming that:
    • Improves the delivery of health care to the indigent, uninsured, and other vulnerable populations
    • Addresses health and health care problems that intersect with social factors.
  • Human Services. The Foundation funds programming that:
    • Strengthens agencies that deliver critical human services and maintains the community’s safety net
    • Helps agencies respond to federal, state, and local public policy changes.

The Fund will consider requests for general operating support only if the organization's operating budget is less than $1 million. The Foundation only supports capital requests, such as those for buildings, land, or major equipment, when meeting a compelling community need and offering a broad social benefit. When participating in a capital project, support is contingent on funding from other sources.
