Apply for a Grant

Each year, the Parsons Area Community Foundation accepts grant applications for nonprofit projects within a 25-mile radius of Parsons. Applications can be submitted online at between Dec. 15 and January 31 from schools, government
entities, or 501(C)(3) nonprofits.

The PACF Board considers all applications for full or partial funding, makes final decisions, and formally announces grantee winners each April. Total granting dollars come from local, Parsons-area donors, and include endowed unrestricted or field of interest funds administered by the PACF board, as well as funds designated by donors to benefit a specific charity.

Any organization receiving funding must agree to submit a project completion report with photos to the Parsons Area Community Foundation. The quality of these completion reports is considered when additional funding is requested for subsequent years.

Qualified organizations must be:

  • A 501(c)(3) organization, religious organization, government entity, school, or an organization using a fiscal agent that is either a 501(c)(3) organization or a government entity? (Within the application you will be asked to upload documentation showing your Federal EIN Number.)
  • Operating within a 25 mile radius of Parsons

** All grant applicants will need to create a NEW account using the link on this page to start a new application. We created a new online system for our 2020 cycle. **


The 2020 grant cycle is now closed and grant recipients will be contacted soon.
