Basic Eligibility Guidelines

Applicants must be a public, tax-exempt organization as defined by Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, OR working with a 501(c)(3) fiscal agent who can receive funds on your behalf.

The Omaha Community Foundation does not make grants in support of individuals, for political campaigns or lobbying efforts, for new small businesses established for personal gain or profit, to support annual fund drives, capital campaigns, to fund an agency’s deficit or endowment, or for the direct support of religious activities. Secular activities provided by religious organizations may be eligible for grant funds.

Please note that grant programs may have eligibility criteria in addition to those listed above.  Before you start the application process, visit the grant program’s page to review all of the eligibility criteria. Supplemental materials are not required and will not be forwarded to committees.
