The Sherwood Foundation® limits grants to nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations that predominately benefit those that are serving Nebraska and must address one of our categories:
Urban Community Partnerships
Our work in Nebraska’s urban communities focuses on family stability and child wellbeing with an overarching emphasis on community context. Using a two-generation approach, we are interested in the relationship between direct service provision and the greater systems that impact a community. Applicants are wise to cite specific research that influences a service model or approach to solving a community challenge.
We support general operating, programs/projects and capital campaigns. Operating grants are made once a year with applications due Feb 15. Program, project specific and capital campaign requests are due August 1. Applications are due by 11:59 P.M. on the Deadline Date.
Organizations may apply for more than one category of funding by submitting a separate application for each request.
Through these grants, The Sherwood Foundation® promotes local capacity to address locally-identified priorities and thereby strengthen the common good we enjoy as fellow Nebraskans. Requests from communities outside of the Omaha and Lincoln metro areas are considered on an ongoing basis.
