The Heartland Area Action Fund  (Unrestricted Community Grant Fund)

The Heartland Area Action Fund is an unrestricted community grant fund created by individuals who have contributed money to the Foundation for charitable uses to address the present and future needs of Ellis, Rooks and Trego Counties. From this endowed fund, the Foundation Board annually determines community grants from a competitive grant application process.  This fund is perfect for donors who wish to make an impact in their community, but do not have a specific cause in mind.
