Dane G. Hansen Community Grants

Ever run into something that sounds too good to be true? Let us introduce you to the Dane G. Hansen Foundation Community Grants Initiative; this initiative is designed to facilitate grants to improve the quality of life for communities in North West Kansas. 

The Dane G. Hansen Foundation has established a partnership with the Greater Northwest Kansas Community Foundation (GNWKCF) and the Greater Salina Community Foundation (GSCF) to assist in the distribution of smaller grants throughout the Foundation’s 26-county service area. 

Each of the two host community foundations acts as an administrator for funds supplied by the Hansen Foundation. Funds are divided equally among the 26 counties in the Hansen Foundation service area.

Match Your Money Month

During the month of October 2016, the Phillips County Community Foundation was challenged to raise up to $50,000 that in turn would be matched by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation to build an Unrestricted Community Grant Fund to help communities across Phillips County. With the help of numerous donors and the dedication of our board members, community volunteers and staff - we were able to exceed our goal by raising an incredible $147,999 to establish a permanently endowed, unrestricted community grant fund for Phillips County!
