Sharing the Love with Community Grants

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

During our recent community grant cycle, more than $43,000 was awarded to 13 charitable projects and organizations in Saline County! We’re excited to #ShareTheLove with all of our recipients this week!

This round of grants was made possible by three funds at the community foundation:

  • Dane G. Hansen Community Grant Fund, which supports projects and programs that improve the community‚Äôs quality of life.
  • Fund for Early Childhood Care, Education and Development, established by Mark and Jane Berkley to better prepare children in Ottawa and Saline Counties for kindergarten.
  • YW Legacy Fund, which supports initiatives that align with the mission of the former YWCA in Salina.
