Spring Grant Applications Due March 15

Russell County Area Community Foundation LogoGrant applications are being accepted now until March 15 for the KHF Children's Fund at the Russell County Area Community Foundation.

The purpose of the grant is to support charitable projects that benefit the health and well-being of children in the Russell County area. Applications are available online at www.rcacf.net or CLICK HERE.

About $15,000 in total grants is available this year through the KHF Children's Fund. This is the fourth year the Community Foundation has awarded this grant and they invite area organizations, schools and nonprofits to submit innovative proposals that will improve the quality of life of children living in the Russell County area. Past grants supported youth health and fitness, school field trips, literacy, environmental education and more.

The KHF Children's Fund was created with a gift from the Kansas Health Foundation, the state's largest private foundation, located in Wichita. The Russell County Area Community Foundation received a $350,000 grant from the Health Foundation when RCACF completed the GROW I challenge in 2008. Many generous donors have since contributed to the fund.
