Dane G. Hansen Foundation Provides Additional Community Grant Funds

The Dane G. Hansen Foundation notified the GSCF this week that they have made an additional grant for each of the counties that were awarded grants through the Greater Salina Community Foundation this year. The new grant will also be for $50,000 per county.

The grant process for the new Dane G. Hansen Community Grants will be almost identical to the previous grants, using the same grant application and selection process, managed by affiliates (or in the four counties without affiliates, by advisory committees). The criteria for grants is identical to the first round, except that a new criterion has been added: education. The preference for community involvement and volunteerism remains. The guidelines have been made clearer that funds are NOT to be used to reduce or replace regular budgetary needs for programs or projects or for programs that are tax-supported.

Also new with Hanson Community Grants II is that each affiliate may determine whether to set a maximum on individual grant amounts (the first grants were restricted to $5,000 or less), although their stated intent is that MULTIPLE grants be awarded in each county. They have also established a defined process for large grant applications that the county may wish to forward directly to the Dane G. Hansen Foundation for consideration for funding.

Katy Kitchen will supervise all Dane G. Hansen Community Grants on behalf of the GSCF, and will disseminate additional information to the affiliates about the grant process, timing, procedures, and reporting requirements.
