County foundation accepting grant applications

The Osage County Community Foundation is accepting grant applications for its next round of grants until Jan. 15, 2016.

The board will meet to review the applications following the deadline. Any organization based in Osage County can apply, but preference is given to those that are not directly tax supported or agencies that have taxing authority.

The foundation will make grants for innovative and creative projects and programs that are responsive to changing community needs in the areas of health, social service, education, recreation and cultural affairs. Grants will not exceed $500 and operational expenses are not funded. 

The foundation also continues to seek donations to continue its work in supporting countywide charitable organizations.

“For the foundation to continue on this path, we must continue to raise money,” said Perry Thompson, the foundation’s president.

Thompson asked Osage County citizens to consider the foundation during financial planning, noting contributions are tax-exempt.

For a copy of the grant application, visit the document center on Osage City’s website, www.osagecity.org, and click on Osage County Community Foundation, or contact Thompson at 785-528-3006. Completed applications should be mailed to the foundation at P.O. Box 24, Osage City, KS 66523.
