Wichita Foundation uses a secure grant management portal that gives you access to grant applications, awarded grants and grant progress reports. The first step is registering on our Grant Portal.
Organizations that have received a grant from WF are eligible to re-apply annually, unless otherwise notified. Specific instructions are included in the grant guidelines for each fund.
We invite collaboratives of all types to apply, including partnerships made up of several nonprofit organizations, schools, governmental entities, resident groups, or nonprofit and business partnerships. The application lead must be a 501(c)(3) organization or be fiscally-sponsored. That organization will assume fiduciary responsibility for the grant.
Depending on the opportunity, various committees review and approve the grants, including donor selection committees and our Board of Directors.
The projected timelines for grant reviews and grant disbursements are included in the summary of the funding opportunity in the Grant Portal.
We are committed to providing capacity-building opportunities and resources to local nonprofits.
We encourage all grant seekers to sign up for our email list to receive notifications about funding opportunities.
