Child Care, Elderly, Recreation, and Sanitation Programs

GrantWatch ID#: 175510
Agency Type:

Foundation / Corporation

Hamilton Community Foundation


Grants to Hamilton County, Nebraska nonprofits for programs for charitable activities that will benefit the local community. The Foundation will consider funding programs that provide care for children, the sick, elderly, and those in need of help; to help provide recreational facilities; and for programs that encourage sanitation and measures for the prevention or suppression of disease.

Preference is given to grant requests that have the following characteristics:

- Offer a broad benefit to the greatest number of Hamilton County residents.
- Funding for the project is limited or unavailable from other sources. (i.e. taxation, budget, etc.)
- Request has a “direct” impact on the lives of Hamilton County residents. (i.e. tutoring, care for disadvantaged, seniors and children, etc.)

Generally, the Foundation does not provide funds for capital campaigns or multi-year pledges.

The Foundation prefers organizations with a tax-exempt status under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Ordinarily, the Committee considers requests only from organizations which have operated successfully for at least one year, and demonstrated their ability to enlist financial support from the public.

Generally, the Foundation does not provide funds to pay normal operating expenses. Routine maintenance such as painting, roof repair, and routine building repairs necessitated by wear and tear or neglect are considered to be a part of operating expense, and therefore not eligible for Foundation grants. However, consideration may be given to grant requests for repairs that are prompted by unusual and unforeseen circumstances.

As a general rule, the Foundation does not grant funds to municipal agencies or departments supported by taxation, except that funds are sometimes grant to finance surveys or studies, fund demonstration or pilot projects, or to match grants of other donors, including governmental agencies.

Generally speaking, the Committee does not grant funds to public school systems or municipalities if that request appears to a usual part of the curriculum and/or the budget and can be budgeted as such. Exceptions may be considered on a per case basis.

Generally, the Foundation does not provide funds for capital campaigns or multi-year pledges.

The Committee does not grant funds for sectarian or religious organizations operating primarily for the benefit of their own members.

The Foundation does not make loans of any kind.

The Foundation does not make grants to individuals other than scholarships.

When filling out the grant application, do not put proposals in binders, notebooks or other presentation packets. Please do not send additional materials (articles, brochures letters etc.) unless they contribute to the Foundation's understanding in an important way.

The Grants Committee Meeting will take place in the 4th week of October. The Board Meeting and final decision will be made the 1st Monday in November.
