Solomon Valley Community Foundation accepting grant applications

BELOIT, Kan.— The Solomon Valley Community Foundation is now accepting applications for spring grants. Online applications are available now and due February 1, 2020.

Recently, the community foundation awarded the Mitchell County Communities that Care, Inc., a grant to bring the Missoula Traveling Children’s Camp to the Beloit area. This is a musical theatre camp that provides a week-long, full theater experience to kids in first through twelfth grades. The camp sends two professional actor/directors with everything needed to put on a play, including a set, lights, costumes, props and makeup.

DiNuzzo said the camp had a positive impact on the children who partook in the program. “Many of the kids who participated displayed new-found confidence in themselves as they stepped out of their comfort zones,” she said.

Over $50,000 is available to charitable projects in Mitchell County. Grants will be awarded from the following funds:

Dane G. Hansen Community Grant Fund – available for programs and projects that address education, health care, community social services and security, conservation and environment, arts and culture, and community beautification.
Community Impact Fund for Solomon Valley – available for projects that improve the quality of life for Mitchell County residents.

Grants are limited to communities in the Solomon Valley service area and will be awarded through a competitive application process. Nonprofit organizations, government and public entities, educational institutions and churches are encouraged to apply. Applications must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. on February 1. Complete funding criteria and the grant application are available at http://solomonvalleycf.org/search-apply-for-a-grant/.

During its spring fall cycle, the community foundation awarded over $44,000 to 16 different projects across Mitchell County, including the communities of Beloit, Hunter and Tipton.
