Discretionary Community Gifts

Midlands Community Foundation provides additional ways to increase charitable giving for community betterment in Sarpy and Cass counties through its discretionary giving. These discretionary gifts assist nonprofit organizations who consider the grant application process to be overwhelming, tedious, or who need immediate financial assistance for their particular project or program. Requests for a discretionary gift should be in the form of a letter, along with any supporting information that would help describe the program or project. All requests are reviewed by the Board President and the Executive Director on a monthly basis. The maximum distribution for discretionary gifts is $1,000 with no minimum requirement. The following are among the organizations who have benefited from Midlands Community Foundation’s discretionary giving.
