Typically, a community foundation serves the people of a certain geographic area. This means that only projects or programs in the Kearney area and surrounding communities are considered for support. Grants are made to nonprofit, federally tax exempt 501(c)(3) qualified organizations or organizations delivering a project or program that qualifies as charitable activity or which has a fiscal relationship with a charity.
Single mission organizations or agencies (like the SAFE Center, HelpCare Clinic, etc.) may apply no more frequently than every 24-month after receiving a BFT grant from KACF. Multi-mission organizations or agencies (like Buffalo County Community Partners, Kearney Public Schools and the University of Nebraska – Kearney) may apply every year, but no more than two requests may be submitted in any one year by any sub-groups (goal work groups, departments, school buildings, etc). Once the sub-group has been awarded a grant, they will need to sit out for two years before reapplying. The committee will consider grant requests on a case-by-case basis.
