A major grant of $25,000 went to the Story County Fair Association for replacing lower level windows of the Community Building, one part of the total renovations project. The Community Building, located on the fairgrounds in Nevada is widely used by youth, family and community groups throughout the year.
The Story County Community Foundation (SCCF) will award one Major Grant in 2017 of up to $25,000.
In order to screen for the most viable projects and limit the number of organizations investing their time applying, applications for the Major Grant are by invitation only. Organizations with potential major grant projects need to complete the Intent to Apply form available below. The Allocations Committee selects organizations to submit a full application proposal. SCCF may select one project for funding from these applications.
Grants are made only to nonprofit organizations recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as tax-exempt, nonprofit, public charities under section 501(c)(3) or a "unit of government" under Section 170(c)(1)-agencies that conduct activities to benefit the public at large. These include public schools, state universities, public libraries, and volunteer fire departments. It is possible, if your agency does not have the IRS status, another agency holding that status can serve as a fiscal sponsor.
Please refer to the Grant Application Guidelines and Overview information available on the Grants Available page in order to ensure you have the best chance of submitting a successful application.
