The Kids Trust is Now Accepting Grant Applications

The Kids Trust LogoThe Foundation for Enhancing Communities (TFEC) is currently accepting proposals for grants available through The Kids Trust. Applications are due April 10, 2015.

This annual competitive grantmaking program is for nonprofit organizations providing programs and services for children of abuse and their families in the counties of Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, and York. The average grant award is $2,500. Applicants should submit proposals that are designed to support child-focused projects within the confines of existing agency programs.

Applicants must either be a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, or have a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization act as a fiscal sponsor for the proposed project.
