The Community Foundation of the Ozarks (CFO) is seeking applications for its Barton County Affiliate Grantmaking Program.
The unique role of a community foundation is to conduct a flexible community grantmaking program which addresses the most important needs of the community at any one time.
The flexibility this requires is made possible by charitable donors who established unrestricted or field-of-interest funds and place the decision-making in the hands of the community leaders serving on their Board of Directors.
Grantees must not, in the use of CFO grant funds, discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or veteran status either in its employment practices or in its policies and procedures concerning access to services.
- The board will be awarding $15,000 during the current grant period. The board will review grant applications and consider the needs of the community before determining number of grants awarded and amount of each grant. While the Board reserves the right to narrow the focus of community grants in the future, for the current year, grant proposals will be accepted in an open field of interest.
- The maximum amount one applicant can request is $3,000.
- Grant proposals are accepted according to an announced time table, and grant recommendations are made as funds are available. 501(c)(3) organizations or other IRS approved nonprofit entities serving Barton County are eligible to apply.
- Applicants who serve Barton County are encouraged to apply.
