Grants to Kansas nonprofit organizations to enhance the quality of life for residents and support recreational development in eligible regions. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application Examples of eligible request categories include the arts, historical preservation, childcare, the elderly, historic preservation, and energy assistance. Grants must benefit the City of Manhattan residents and support recreational development in the town of Keats.

The Foundation will consider funding projects from local organizations that include, but are not limited to; the KONZA Prairie, the Regional Crisis Center, the Sunset Zoo, the Special Olympics, and the UFM.

The Foundation will also consider funding projects from any other Manhattan nonprofit organization involving the arts (including theater), energy assistance for low income individuals and/or families facilities, historical preservation, libraries, parks and recreation, services for the elderly and handicapped, and subsidized child care which enables a parent or parents to be employed or be educated.

The Foundation prefers to support proposals that emphasize funding for programs and community benefits. Proposals that request funds for administrative overhead or operational expenses are not encouraged. However, such requests may be considered in exceptional circumstances.

The Foundation strongly encourages, but does not require, collaborative efforts. If a project is proposed as a collaborative effort, Letters of Commitment will be required with full grant proposals but not Letters of Intent.

The Foundation believes community enthusiasm and involvement are essential ingredients for project success and encourages proposals that effectively demonstrate community support and participation.

Grant proposals must show legitimate evidence of program sustainability for all projects that will continue beyond the funding period.

The Grants Committee encourages organizations to build endowments.

Capital improvement requests may be considered in circumstances that provide exceptional benefit to the community. If the project involves substantial capital improvement expenditures, the Foundation will require appropriate architectural and/or engineering consulting and supervision.
