Royals Charities' average grant award for 2017 was $16.086.50. However, for first-time applications or smaller organizations, a request for $5,000 in funding would be appropriate.
To qualify for funding consideration, your organization must be a 501(c)(3) organization with a federal tax identification number and operate in the greater Kansas City area.
Organizations whose operating budgets do not exceed $5 million are preferred, but a larger budget does not preclude your organization from consideration for funding.
Funding will not be provided for:
- General operating expenses or salaries
- Event sponsorships
Please Note: These grants are not intended to be used for baseball/softball field renovation/improvement funding requests.
