Solomon Valley Community Foundation accepting grant applications

Tuesday, June 30th, 2020

BELOIT, Kan.— The Solomon Valley Community Foundation is now accepting applications for fall grants. Online applications open July 1 and are due August 1, 2020.

Last fall, a community foundation grant was awarded to the Hunter Economic Development Corporation to purchase a new community sign. This sign contributes to getting events and news out to the community in a timely, effective manner.

“The sign allowed us to reach and be a small part of the lives of everyone in town and the outside communities,” said grantee Steven Schneider. “The community sign has become a focal point of Main Street, Hunter, Kansas. We have had many comments on how well the sign is positioned for everyone to read from four different directions.”

This cycle, over $50,000 is available to charitable projects in Mitchell County. Grants will fund local community projects that meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Programs and projects that address education, health care, community social services and security, conservation and environment, arts and culture, and community beautification.
  • Projects that improve the quality of life for Mitchell County residents.

Funding for the fall grant cycle is provided by the Dane G. Hansen Community Grant Fund and the Community Impact Fund for Solomon Valley. Grants are limited to communities in the Mitchell County 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 August 1. Complete funding criteria and the grant application are available at http://solomonvalleycf.org/search-apply-for-a-grant/.
