Truman Heartland Community Foundation (THCF) announced more than $310,000 in grants have been awarded to 48 nonprofits serving the community.
“This is a critical time for our nonprofits and agencies who work with those most vulnerable in the community,” Phil Hanson, Truman Heartland President and CEO said.
“In response to the current crisis, we fast-tracked the review process for this year’s competitive grants program, expediting funding and providing flexibility nonprofits need to meet the ever-changing needs of our region.”
Each year, Truman Heartland Community Foundation awards competitive grants to nonprofits that serve Eastern Jackson County, awarding grants in five interest areas: Arts and Culture, Community Betterment, Education, Health and Human Services and Wildlife Conservation in Missouri. Awards range from $2,000 to $25,000. This year, $48,600 in additional contributions were provided from Truman Heartland’s Youth Advisory Council, the Junior Service League of Independence, and multiple donor advised fundholders at the Community Foundation.
Due to COVID-19, Truman Heartland canceled its traditional November Grants Luncheon and accelerated their grant review process to award funding through this year’s competitive grants program in June and July.
