Matching Grant – Kansas Health Foundation

The Hillsboro Community Foundation received a big boost to the growth of the foundation in 2010 when it applied for and received a matching-fund grant of $363,000 from the Kansas Health Foundation’s GROW Il program. As a result, HCF was able to increase the amount of annual grants early in the life of the foundation and expand our operating capability.

Grants from outside agencies and organizations, matching or otherwise, typically require local financial commitment before a grant will be considered. HCF has played a role in helping to meet this requirement for grants related to the Hillsboro Elementary School Playground Project in 2014 and the H4C Childcare Project in 2023.
