Grant Opportunities

The FSACF granting process is open to all qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations and governmental entities. Proposals are considered on the basis of how they improve the quality of life of citizens in the Fort Scott area. FSACF is particularly interested in projects that are sustainable in the future. Projects that are collaborative are strongly encouraged.

The Fort Scott Area Community Foundation application grant cycle for 2017/2018 is now closed.

Acceptance and declination letters will be mailed on Tuesday, October 24. Grants will be awarded at the Foundation’s Chamber Coffee held in the Landmark Bank lobby at Third and Main at 8 A.M. on Thursday, November 2.
