Topeka: Youth Development Concept Paper Now Available

The Foundation is pleased to issue a call for concept papers for our Youth Development initiative – which will fund collaborative programs/projects which teach useful skills and build self-confidence of young people ensuring capable, effective leaders for the next generation. We anticipate awarding grants of $15,000.00 or less to each awardee with final decisions made in late April. You can access the online application here:—101—concept-paper- or by going to our website at and clicking on the link there. The deadline for submitting your program/project idea is February 11, 2014.

Thank you to everyone who attended a Topeka Gives information session. We had a great turn out and are looking forward to an event that is even bigger and better than last year! If you were unable to attend one of the sessions, but are interested in participating, please contact me for details.

Again … to be alerted to all things Foundation related, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (@TopekaCF).

Thanks so much!
