Grant Opportunities

The Fremont Area Community Foundation funds grants for civic improvement, health and recreation, social services, arts and culture, and educational purposes in Fremont, Nebraska, and surrounding communities. Grants are made from the earnings from the Foundation's Fremont Forever Fund, from the Lester A. Walker Fund, and from funds advised by particular donors. Grantees must be qualified charitable organizations and no grants are made to individuals except in the form of scholarships.

To apply for a grant, organizations must submit an application form with supporting documentation (different procedures are used for donor-advised funds.) The form provides complete instructions for submitting a grant application. The Grants Committee meets four times per year to review grant requests and make recommendations to the Foundation's Board of Directors for final approval.
