The Nebraska Presbyterian Foundation accepts grant applications during two annual grant cycles:
SPRING GRANT CYCLE
Nebraska Presbyterian churches and related organizations (PCUSA) may apply for grants for the support and benefit of new or ongoing outreach activities which enhance or expand some aspect of their ministry. General operating grant applications are not accepted.
Applicants may submit an online Letter of Intent (LOI) December 1-31, 2020, through our grant portal. All applicants will be notified by January 15, 2021, if they are eligible to complete the full grant application. Eligible applicants must submit the full grant application by February 15, 2021. Spring Grants will be awarded April 2021.
FALL GRANT CYCLE
Human services organizations in Lancaster and Platte counties in Nebraska who work to meet the needs of vulnerable populations, with preference to the elderly, and whose programs create pathways toward greater self-sufficiency and empowerment may apply for grants for the support and benefit of programs and projects which strengthen their mission and community. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable populations and the organizations who serve them, we will accept applications for general operating grants during the 2020 Fall Grant Cycle. Our primary focus will be on organizations and programs which benefit the elderly.
Applicants may submit an online Letter of Intent (LOI) June 1-30, 2021, through our grant portal. All applicants will be notified by July 15, 2021, if they are eligible to complete the full grant application. Eligible applicants must submit the full grant application by August 15, 2021. Fall Grants will be awarded October 2021.
All applicants must have current 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status to be eligible for funding. Grants are made to provide partial support for a program or project. Preference is given to projects or programs that demonstrate broad funder support. Applicant must show that the program or project can be sustained after the grant period without additional funding from Nebraska Presbyterian Foundation and have clearly stated and achievable objectives and timeframes. Organizations may not submit multiple applications in a grant cycle. Organizations who are awarded a grant may not reapply for two years.
