2020 Grants Program CoverEach year, Truman Heartland Community Foundation invests in the community by awarding competitive grants to nonprofits that serve Eastern Jackson County and the surrounding communities.

For 2020, Truman Heartland awarded more than $310,000 in grants to the nonprofits listed below. More than $48,600 in additional contributions were provided from Truman Heartland’s Youth Advisory Council, the Junior Service League of Independence and multiple donor advised fundholders at the Community Foundation.

Under normal circumstances, the Community Foundation hosts a Grants Luncheon in November, during Community Foundation Week. Due to the coronavirus crisis, Truman Heartland canceled the event and accelerated their grant review process to award funding through this year’s competitive grants program in June and July.
