Community foundation awards $3,000 to local organizations in first quarter 2021 grants

Osage County Community Foundation has announced that it awarded $3,000 to three area non-profit entities for the first quarter grant period of 2021. All grants issued will be used to benefit youth and senior citizens in the area.

The foundation awards grants for long term projects that allow communities to benefit for many years to come. Through its grant making opportunities, the foundation works to bring together the financial resources of individuals, families, and businesses to support nonprofit organizations and others in our community. Any organization or group based in Osage County can apply for grants, but preference is given to those that are not directly tax supported or agencies that have taxing authority.

The foundation is currently in its June to September grant period, and applications will be accepted for this round until Sept. 30, 2021.
