  • Dane G. Hansen Foundation Community Grant Fund for Wallace County

Wallace County is one of 26 counties in northwest Kansas that has been awarded two rounds of $50,000 grants per year since 2015 from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation. This grant fund was established in March 2015 to allow qualifying 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations; or educational, governmental or religious institutes per IRS, to apply for funding assistance for projects intended for Wallace County benefit. Qualifying entities may apply online; grants are awarded through a competitive application process. For criteria and application information, click here; also found on the Grants and Scholarships tab.  The Hansen Foundation has guaranteed additional rounds of funding to continue through 2021, providing continual county-wide participation in the Wallace County Strategic Doing Initiative.

Keep 5 in Kansas

We have an opportunity in Wallace County to turn our hopes for the future into reality!  If we capture a portion of the transfer of wealth from one generation to the next – even just 5% – by setting up endowments through the Wallace County Foundation, we could provide a permanent source of funding for our local organizations and causes that will greatly improve the lives of the residents of Wallace County.
