Osborne County Community Foundation accepting fall grant applications

OSBORNE, Kan.—The Osborne County Community Foundation is accepting applications for fall grants. Online applications open September 1 and are due Monday, November 1, 2021.

Last grant cycle, the Osborne County Community Foundation awarded USD 392 a grant to add sensory paths on the sidewalks of the USD 392 campus for elementary students to utilize during outdoor play and learning times. The sensory paths have provided students with both learning and physical fitness opportunities as students use them to develop motor skills.

"The sensory path has been a true positive and eye appealing addition to our school playground. The students noticed it right away and were ready to start playing on it even prior to the paint drying,” said Superintendent and OES Principal Troy Landon.

This cycle, grants are available to charitable projects in Osborne County. Grants will fund local community projects that meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Programs and projects that address education, health care, community social services and security, conservation and environment, arts and culture, and community beautification
  • Projects that improve the quality of life for Osborne County residents

Funding for the fall grant cycle is provided by the Dane G. Hansen Community Grant Fund and the Osborne County Community Fund.

Grants will be awarded through a competitive application process. Nonprofit organizations, government and public entities, educational institutions and churches are encouraged to apply. Applications must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. on November 1. Funding guidelines and the grant application are available at
