About the Funds

Through donations, grants are provided to improve the health and well-being of Barton County women by addressing critical needs not met by other community resources.

How It Works

Generous donations to the Prairie Godmother Funds goes to a permanent endowment fund, perpetuity for the long-term needs of Barton County women.

Grant applications are accepted from our local partner agencies, who will help identify the short-term, critical needs. Grants will be made in a matter of days and are paid directly to the vendors of the requested service or need.
