2021 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.

This year, Truman Heartland awarded more than $420,000 in grants to the nonprofits listed below. Nearly $100,000 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.
