The Greater Salina Community Foundation is pleased to a call for grant applications from the YW Legacy Fund. This fund makes grants to initiatives that support the mission of the former YWCA in our community. Approximately $20,800 in grant funds will be available this year for multiple projects.
Grant requests should address one or more of the following criteria:
• Encourage women’s growth, leadership and power in order to attain a common vision for peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all people
• Help children attain their greatest potential
• Create an environment to assist in the physical and mental health and well-being of women and their families
• Pursue the elimination of racism wherever it exists
The YW Legacy Fund was established in 2006 by the board members of the former YWCA of Salina. Assets from the sale of the YWCA building, an endowment for the YWCA and funds previously established for the YWCA at the Community Foundation were combined to create the YW Legacy Fund. Former supporters of the YWCA have also contributed to the fund.
Applications are available through the Foundation’s website at www.gscf.org/grants. Applications are due by March 4, 2016. Awards will be made in April.
