Grants

The Keokuk Area Community Foundation invests in local nonprofit organizations that contribute to improving the quality of life in our communities. Our grants support innovation, sustainability and capacity building.

Every year, The Keokuk Area Community Foundation Grant Endowment Fund distributes grants to Tri-State Area Nonprofit Organizations. The deadline for The Keokuk Area Community Foundation Grant Endowment Fund Grant Applications is in the Fall of every year. Grants are normally awarded in November of the same year an application is received. If awarded a grant, the organization will receive funding in November/December. Organizations can preview the KACF Grant Application here at any time.

Historically, past grants have been awarded in the range from a few hundred dollars to $5,000.00.  There may be occasions where The Keokuk Area Community Foundation Grant Committee may award partial funding to some or all grant applicants.  The Keokuk Area Community Foundation Board of Directors has the responsibility of approving all grants.
