We make grants for projects that have the potential to make a measurable impact.
This is the assessment criteria for all new grant requests. It is not necessarily reflective of past grants The Hulston Family Foundation has made, or of organizations with whom we have had an ongoing relationship.
We only accept new requests from community-based organizations whose efforts are focused in West Central and Southwest Missouri. Priority will be given to Jackson County (Kansas City metro) and Greene County (Springfield metro). We only make grants to organizations with a history of effectiveness good management, and a sound and transparent financial condition.
Only those projects or programs that are consistent with our identified areas of interest will be considered. You can find our areas of interest on the “Who We Are” page of this website. You must have well-defined plans and clear goals that have the potential to make a measurable impact on the community.
We do not accept grant requests for capital campaigns from organizations with whom we have not had an ongoing relationship. We will fund operational expenses, and new projects. We do not make first-time grants for more than $25,000, nor do we make grants for an amount that is more than 10% of an organizations operating budget.
You must be registered as a 501(c)(3) organization.
