The Keokuk Area Community Foundation Grants are given from a combination of un-restricted donations given to KACF from generous donors and annual fund distributions from the Keokuk Area Community Foundation Grant Endowment Fund.
The Keokuk Area Community Foundation distributes grants only to Lee County Iowa, Hancock County Illinois, and Clark County Missouri 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, or qualified governmental agencies. Grants are not awarded in the following areas: annual fund raising, organizational endowment funds, deficit financing, grants to individuals, scholarship purposes or for sectarian purposes. This year, grants are available up to $5,000. Extraordinary amounts may be given if an exceptional need is seen by the Keokuk Area Community Foundation. Only one project per organization will be considered.
Applications and accompanying materials are due on or before September 7, 2018 (if sending by U.S. Mail, please allow time for delivery). Applications received after the deadline will not be considered. KACF only accepts mailed grant applications and does not accept emailed grant applications. All 2018 KACF General Fund Grant Applications will be processed in the Fall of 2018. All 2018 KACF Grant Recipients will initially be notified by November 2018.
