Grant Description
Grants to Missouri nonprofit organizations, government agencies, schools, and faith-based organizations to provide services to low-income communities in eligible counties. Applicants must submit a concept letter prior to submitting a full application. Projects and programs must benefit residents in the Springfield MSA, including Greene, Christian, Dallas, Polk, and Webster Counties.

The Musgrave Foundation supports engagement in long-term, high-impact philanthropy by making available the opportunity for agencies to apply for larger-scale, multi-year grants. The Musgrave Multi-Year Impact Grant Program establishes long-term funding to have significant impact on challenges in the Springfield-Greene County region. Focus areas on this grant program will be established each year factoring Mrs. Musgrave’s focus areas and changing community needs.

Priority concepts: Ideal agency applicants to this program provide direct service to low-income communities in the Springfield MSA. Applications should primarily focus on strategies by agencies to build long-term organizational financial stability in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic which ensures continuous service to individuals of great need in the community.

Examples of potential grant proposals include:

  • Expenses associated with organizational restructuring
  • Creation of a new development strategy in the wake of COVID-19
  • Capital and technology expenses
  • Organizational strategic planning
  • Other consultation support that stabilizes the applicant organization
  • Staff time allocated to working toward long-term organizational sustainability


Recipient

Additional Eligibility Criteria
Eligible organizations:
- Lead applicant agencies must be nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations, government entities, school districts, or tax-exempt faith-based organizations.

Additionally, eligible proposals must primarily focus on Greene County but can include work occurring in the Springfield, Missouri MSA.

Ineligible
Eligible agencies must not be current recipients of another Musgrave Multi-Year grant program (Foster Families or Student Citizenship).
