Grants to Central Kansas nonprofit organizations and government agencies to benefit communities in Barton, Pawnee, Rush, and Stafford counties. Requests will be considered for a broad range of charitable purposes. Funding is primarily awarded for activities that address the health and wellbeing of young people.

There is very limited funding for: arts and culture, services for the indigent, health and human services, nutrition and physical activity, community education and development, community improvement, and public health.

The Foundation supports programs and projects that are:
-Innovative: new methods that address key community issues
-Collaborative: leverages resources and builds partnerships
-Proactive: anticipatory or prevention-oriented
-Measurable: research driven with reliable data
-Sustainable: creates a lasting impact and is ongoing

Grants may be made to public charities; that is organizations described in section 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(1), (a)(2), or (a)(3); and to private operating foundations.

Grants may also be made to units of government for public purposes. This includes Native American tribal governments.

In exceptional circumstances, grants may be made to other types of nonprofit organization and to businesses. Using expenditure responsibility as a guideline, the Foundation will carefully supervise any such grants to document the use of its funds solely for charitable purposes.
