Organization Fund Benefits

There are several other benefits to having an organization fund with the Foundation:

  • We offer educational workshops for the benefit of nonprofit organizations, their staff and board members at a reduced rate.
  • Our staff is available for consultation with you, your board members, and potential donors of your organization.
  • Your organization will be listed in the Foundation’s annual report, on our website, in our Holiday Card program and are sometimes featured in our quarterly newsletter.

Regardless if your organization has a fund at the Foundation, we still offer opportunities for all nonprofit organizations and others performing charitable work in the Salina area to apply for grants from the Foundation’s Fund for Greater Salina. A call for applications is announced in the Foundation’s newsletter, on our website, and through the mass media.

Seize the Moment Grants are offered on an ongoing basis throughout the year. These are small, quick grants that respond to immediate needs in our community. A limited amount of the Foundation’s unrestricted grant funds are set aside to support these grant opportunities that occur outside our regular grant cycle.
