The Grand Island Community Foundation is accepting applications to the Greater Impact Grants program.

Funding is available in the following focus areas:

Animal Welfare and Wildlife Conservation - These grants promote economic support and development for animals and their homes. Assistance is available for the support of shelter or stray animals and for the protection, development, and conservation of wildlife and their natural habitat.

Arts and Culture - These grants should strive to stimulate thought, communication, and creativity through programs in the arts and humanities that enhance or develop the common aesthetic spirit through education, creation, or performance. 

Basic Needs - Nationally, the basic needs approach focuses on addressing poverty and is one of the primary methods used to determine absolute poverty. It attempts to define the resources for physical well-being. Immediate "basic needs" include food, water, shelter, clothing, sanitation, health, physical and mental well-being. 

Children and Youth - These grants should help children grow — physically, socially, and intellectually into healthy, mature, and productive adults through programs that ensure all children are supported, nurtured, and protected in their homes and community. Programs should focus on childhood development and reduction of at-risk behavior through activities, education, and prevention programs. 

Community Enrichment - These grants promote economic development, improve community services, and encourage residents to become actively involved in community enrichment projects by providing the training, tools, and resources needed.

Community Health - These grants should encourage healthy lifestyle choices that promote healthy behaviors and provide access to the resources needed to build healthy individuals, neighborhoods, and communities. 

Education - These grants should focus on supplementing the educational system to ensure children have access to the tools they need to build a foundation for life-long learning. The programs and/or projects should help people learn to cope with life's challenges, gain skills to better care for their families, and ensure access to academic and technological opportunities, thus allowing individuals to develop their personal, social, and professional skills. 

Veterans Services - These grants provide funding for veteran-related projects and are designed to support organizations that offer services to and assist local veterans and their families. These services provided by local organizations can include rehabilitation, health, education, and much more.

Agencies are encouraged to contact the Grand Island Community Foundation prior to submitting a proposal to discuss the appropriateness of the request.

Preference is given to programs that reach a broad segment of the community, assist those whose needs are not adequately met by existing services, promote cooperation among organizations, improve the organization's effectiveness, and support accessibility of programs for underserved and underrepresented populations.

Grant requests are accepted from qualified 501(c)(3) organizations located in the Hall County area. Grant applications must be submitted online. If the application deadline falls on a Saturday or Sunday, grant applications are due the Monday immediately following.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and are reviewed quarterly.
