Grants ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 to nonprofits in Polk County, Iowa; Lancaster County, Nebraska; and Denver County, Colorado for innovative projects and initiatives that benefit children and families. Programs can provide support in the areas of education, poverty, housing, gender, or mental, and physical health.

Grant applications from organizations that have a charitable element should target needs of specific individuals, families, or small groups who must be served by 501(c)(3) agencies.

The criteria for evaluation will include consistency with the Viking Foundation core values, described need, economic efficiency, expectation of measurable results and the prospect of alleviation of future problems. The Foundation normally prefers to fund proposals for specific activities, projects and initiatives that are creative/innovative, unique and stand-alone in nature.

Core Values:

- Young people are the world's greatest resource.
- All people deserve an opportunity to learn and work, and to learn to work.
- Recreation is an essential element in a quality-of-life formula.
- Good health results in a good life.
- Discrimination in any iteration is intolerable.
- Good and adequate food and clothing should be always available.
- Decent housing should be a right, not a privilege.
- Population control is important to the planet.
- The environment must be protected for future generations.


Preference will generally be given to proposals requesting support in the $5,000 - $10,000 range.

Projects that have a limited (one year or less) time frame are preferred.

This support will only be provided to other 501(c)(3) organizations in three counties in Nebraska (Lancaster), Iowa (Polk) and Colorado (Denver) .

Funds are generally not granted to large organizations for their general budget or to cover overhead. Faith-based entities are eligible to apply for funding for specific projects and activities that are consistent with Viking Foundation core values that do not include proselytizing.

Grant Requests are due October 1, 2017. The award date will be December 15, 2017.
