Grants to Saline County, Kansas nonprofits, as well as educational, government and faith-based institutions for youth programs in the areas of arts, humanities, science, technology, and invention. Funding is intended for new programs or the enhancement of existing programs that encourage hands-on learning. Programs should be for youth, high school age and younger.
The following types of support are eligible:
-Project or program support: Supports specific projects or programs that serve the community and are linked to an organization’s primary service
-Seed money: To establish or initiate a new project, program or organization. Seed money can cover salaries and other operating expenses of a new project (also known as start up funds)
-Capacity Building: Activities that strengthen an organization and help it better fulfill its mission, such as equipment, staff, publications, training or convening
-Capital: Supports construction or renovation of a facility
-Endowments: Intended to be kept permanently and invested to provide income for continued support of an organization. Please note that unless it is a specific initiative, it is unlikely that the committee would use Foundation unrestricted funds to support an Endowment project.
Preference will be given to grants for projects, seed money, or capacity building.
