Need a grant?

The Topeka Community Foundation provides a variety of funding opportunities through grants and permanent funding, as well as resources to assist your organization.

How are we unique?

We're grantmakers

We reinvest more than $2 million each year into nonprofits working hard to improve our community. Our Greater Topeka Fund and initiative grants  each focus on a different aspect of life in Topeka and Shawnee County. This offers you a clear and predictable means for planning your grant requests.

We're donor services

We help you grow your funding through organization funds held right here at the Foundation. Endowments offer a predictable source of income in an unstable funding environment. We realize you need more than simply program-specific funding to improve our community. Rather, it’s a combination of resources: financial, relational and intellectual.

We're community conveners

Information we gather during our competitive grant programs, combined with one-on-one discussions with public officials, donors and nonprofits, offer us broad and deep insight into the pressing needs and prevailing beliefs in our community. This better positions us to make vital links between funders, charities, public officials and everyday citizens. It also positions us to offer you more holistic nonprofit guidance.


The Staff and Board of Directors is working to align our strategic plan with our grantmaking processes for 2017.  Complete information about grant opportunities will be available soon.
