Grant Guidelines

The foundation is currently considering grants in four major areas:

  • Cancer Awareness and Breast Cancer Support – to foster innovation and research and support clinical services and outreach.
  • Assistance to Special Needs Kids – to support organizations that provide programs and services to children with disabilities.
  • Health and Welfare – to assist organizations providing health programs and services for children and young adults.
  • Arts, Education and Conservation – to foster education and the arts and provide support for animal conservation and research.

Applications will be considered in these general areas or for special projects established by the Board. Proposals will only be considered for programs within the State of Missouri.


Proposals will be evaluated on the basis of the procedure outlined herein (Application Process). Multi-year capital projects may be considered but it is not generally the foundation’s intention to provide annual operating support. In general, it is not the foundation’s desire to be the sole source of funding for a project.

Each grant request will be evaluated on its merits and the interests of the foundation. There is no fixed range of grant size but requests should reflect the foundation’s limited budget.
