The goal of the Shelby County Community Foundation grant programs is to improve the quality of life in the county by supporting needs that are not being met in the areas of civic, cultural, health, education and social service. The Shelby County Community Foundation’s objective is to fund projects that will have a permanent impact on the county that people can take advantage of for many years. As an affiliate of the Omaha Community Foundation, the Shelby County Community Foundation was established in 1998.
