Jewell County Community Foundation accepting grant applications

MANKATO, Kan.— The Jewell County Community Foundation is accepting applications for spring grants. Online applications open March 1 and are due Sunday, May 1, 2022.

Last spring, Mankato City Library was awarded a grant from the community foundation to assist with funding to host the 3rd annual Kansas Mammoth Music and Art Festival in Mankato, Kansas, helping allow it to be a “free to the public” event. This project used grant funding to help with paying the musicians, performers, and sound engineer during the festival.

This year, over $46,000 in grants is available to charitable projects in Jewell County. This cycle will fund local community projects that meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Programs and projects that address education, health care, community social services and security, conservation and environment, arts and culture, and community beautification.

Funding for the spring grant cycle is provided by the Dane G. Hansen Community Grant Fund and the Jewell County Community Fund.

Grants are limited to communities in Jewell County and will be awarded through a competitive application process. Nonprofit organizations, government and public entities, educational institutions and churches are encouraged to apply. Applications must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. on May 1. Complete funding criteria and the grant application are available at
