Community Grants

Ever run into something that sounds too good to be true? Let us introduce you to the Phillips County Community Foundation which facilitates grants to improve the quality of life for the residents and communities in Phillips County.

PCCF works in partnership with the Dane G. Hansen Foundation and the Greater Northwest Kansas Community Foundation (GNWKCF) to assist in the distribution of grants throughout the foundations' service areas. 

A partial list of the types of funds and grants PCCF has administered for the past few years are listed below.

During the month of October, the Phillips County Community Foundation is challenged to raise up to $50,000 to be matched by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation.  This enables PCCF to build the grant fund to help communities across the county. With the help of generous donors and the dedication of our board members, community volunteers and staff - we have exceeded our goal each year.
