County foundation accepting spring grant applications

OSBORNE, Kan.—The Osborne County Community Foundation is accepting applications for spring grants. Online applications open February 1 and are due Thursday, April 1, 2021.


Last spring, the city of Natoma was awarded a grant from the Osborne County Community Foundation to build a new dugout on the west side of the baseball field. This project replaced the home dugout to make it safer, roomier, and an overall better experience for all future players.


The support of community grants from the Osborne County Community Foundation have made it possible to make Natoma a better place for the citizens of Osborne County and the surrounding area.


This year, grants are available to charitable projects in Osborne County through the following two funds:


  • Dane G. Hansen Community Grant Fund – available for programs and projects that address education, health care, community social services and security, conservation and environment, arts and culture, and community beautification.
  • Osborne County Community Fund – available for projects that improve the quality of life for Osborne County residents.


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 April 1. Funding guidelines and the grant application are available at
