Does Your Organization Have a Program That Benefits Our Region?
Truman Heartland Community Foundation competitive grants are made possible primarily by funds set up by donor bequests and wills. THCF invests in nonprofit organizations that strive to improve the lives of people living, working, and serving in our suburban Eastern Jackson and Cass County communities. Our grant awards are investments in the region, helping fulfill our mission to improve lives by promoting and serving private giving for the public good. We continually explore options to leverage additional funding and resources to award grants of impact throughout the area.
THCF is committed to supporting our nonprofit community, and we recognize the financial and operational strain that nonprofits may experience at times. Therefore, we provide the opportunity for agencies to apply for either general operating funding or program/project (including capital and equipment) through our two competitive grantmaking programs.
It is important to remember that grants must benefit the residents and communities within the THCF service area. Suburban Eastern Jackson County encompasses communities east of I-435 and outside of Kansas City proper. THCF also serves Cass County communities. Here is a helpful zip code map that may assist you in determining if your service, program, or project qualifies.
Two Grant Programs Available
There are two separate grant programs available through THCF, the Community Grants program and the Jelley Family Foundation Endowment for Children's Education. Eligible applicants may apply for both the Community Grants and the Jelley Family Foundation programs, but not with the same proposal or for the same project or service.
