2021 Project Grant Guidelines

May 11, 2021

If your nonprofit has short-term projects aimed at helping kids with basic needs, apply for a project grant!

Grant Impact

Our goal is simple- support work that supports young people.  We do this by providing funding that empowers the work nonprofits do to improve the lives of Nebraska kids.

Last year our focus was on partnering with youth serving organizations to address challenges facing Nebraska youth.  There was special attention given to meeting basic needs.

This year, however, we intend to support efforts aimed at improving outcomes for young people. The three main areas of focus are: Basic Needs, Well-Being, and Education.

Eligible Youth Serving Organizations

You are eligible to apply if your organization is a qualified tax exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in good standing within Nebraska.  Our favorite partners are those that serve vulnerable and at-risk youth.  Additionally, we are hopeful that organizations will align their requests with their local Public Health District’s Community Health Action Plan (CHIP).

Target Population  

Our project grant funding is specifically aimed at kids that may need help realizing their potential.  We give preference to organizations that serve vulnerable and at-risk populations.  This includes children and youth ages 0-18 years that are most vulnerable or at risk of disparities in access, service use, and outcomes.
