Grants to Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota nonprofit organizations working in the areas of wildlife, conservation, arts, public broadcasting, or disaster relief to support capital projects. Applicants must request an invitation to apply prior to submitting a full application. The Foundation has a preference for organizations in the Sioux City area.
The mission of the Gilchrist Foundation is to carry out the philanthropy established by the Gilchrist family. The emphasis is on fostering the long-term viability of the charity and enabling special projects rather than supplying short-term operating funds. The Foundation provides incentives and funds to pre-selected nonprofit organizations, with a preference for the Sioux City area. Interests considered for funding include Wildlife & Conservation, Arts & Public Broadcasting, and Disaster Relief.
The goal of a capital campaign grant is to make a significant contribution to worthy renovation or expansion projects that will enhance the mission of the recipient charity. Again, some preference is given to the use of foundation funds to stimulate matching funds.
Over the years, the Gilchrist Foundation has made about 55% of its total grants to endowment and capital campaigns. The Foundation also has a pattern of awarding about 45% of its total grants to the Arts, including not only the fine arts, but also cultural and historical groups.
