FORT RILEY SPOUSES CLUB GRANT APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE

 

Community Assistance Grant Applications Available For Nonprofits

 

 

FORT RILEY, KANSAS, February 1, 2021 — The Fort Riley Spouses Club (FRSC) will accept
Community Assistance Fund grant applications from eligible area nonprofit organizations from
January 30, 2021, until 11:59:59 PM March 5, 2021. Grant recipients will be notified in April and
awarded in May 2021.


The FRSC Community Assistance Fund (CAF) is designated to help other nonprofit organizations
advance the quality of life for military families and the surrounding Fort Riley community. A minimum
of 10% of the CAF is awarded to the Combined Scholarship Fund of Greater Fort Riley each year,
supporting scholarships for military spouses and children, with the remainder going to eligible grant
applicants. The FRSC holds two fundraisers each year and accepts donations year-round to build the
fund, distributing awards each May.


Nonprofits may donate or download grant applications from the FRSC’s website at
https://fortrileyspousesclub.org/communitygrants. Applications must be submitted online no later than
11:59:59 PM March 5, 2021. Returning applicants in receipt of a 2020 FRSC grant must provide
documentation showing the grant was used for its requested purpose. Donations to the FRSC are
tax-deductible up to the limits described under 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code.


The Fort Riley Spouses Club (FRSC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit social and charitable organization
