Grant Guidelines

Be certain to submit your grant application by 5 p.m. on the deadline date. If you would like to have Kendra Kempf review your grant request for completion, be sure to submit it several weeks before the deadline date. By doing so, she can help determine if there is additional information you need to include.


Grants usually do not support operating budgets, basic municipal services, basic educational functions, endowment campaigns, previously incurred debt and sectarian religious programs.


Low priority is given to requests for travel for groups such as school classes, clubs or sports teams.


The foundation does not give grants to individuals, including requests for utility payments and food.
