The Foundation is proud to announce two grant funding rounds in 2021 to qualifying non-profit group(s) in the USD 388 area. The first round of competitive grant funding accepts applications from January 1, 2021 to March 31, 2021, and the second round accepts applications from June 1, 2021 to August 31, 2021.
Due to limited funding and the competitive nature of the grant process, preference will be given to tangible, long-lived community assets for an amount not to exceed $1,000.00. Expendable items may be awarded by a matching grant only, with an amount not to exceed $500.00. Fundraising dates for matching grants in cycle #1 are from April 1, 2021 until April 1, 2022, and for cycle 2 are September 1, 2021 to September 1, 2022. Once the application is turned in, no changes are allowed.
