The Central Kansas Community Foundation has about $31,000 for grants to pay for projects and programs that will directly benefit the children in communities in any service area of the CKCF and its affiliates.
Peabody Community Foundation is one of the CKCF affiliates.
Called the “Central Kansas Kids FUNd Grant,” the grant opportunities are available only for child related programs.
Charities and nonprofits serving the children in eligible communities are encouraged to apply for grants by 5 p.m. March 9. Grant applications must be filed online.
To see the communities that are eligible, visit the CKCF web site at www.centralkansascf.org.
The application, fact sheet, and online grant application instructions are available at that site along with a list of 2014 recipients and their projects.
Prospective applicants in need of more information may contact Chancy Gerbitz, program director of Central Kansas Community Foundation at (316) 283-5474 or (316) 619-1185.
