A marketplace just for nonprofits.
The Nonprofit Marketplace connects nonprofits with resources and opportunities in the community. Organizations, businesses and individuals can post an offer free of charge, but the information needs to be for an opportunity or resource specifically benefiting nonprofit organizations.
Potential offers include: spaces or items for rent, free or discounted materials or equipment, funding or fundraising opportunities, calls for nominations for awards or contests, and survey participation.
A coalition of Kansas City area public and private foundations has established a Metro Kansas City Census Equity Fund to support localized education and outreach efforts aimed at ensuring full participation in the 2020 Census. The Census Equity Fund will support local efforts to mobilize and connect with people in traditionally hard-to-count communities as identified through regional census data.
The Census Equity Fund seeks proposals that address informational barriers and other issues that hinder participation. Priority will be given to the following strategies:
- Educating groups and residents about the purpose and benefits of census data and its importance to families, businesses, and neighborhoods;
- Partnering with grassroots leaders to engage residents in hard-to-count areas;
- Mobilizing populations that are at risk of being undercounted due to culture, language, age, and other factors.
Eligible organizations will be those working within the Greater Kansas City bistate area that are positioned to effectively engage their particular constituents and promote census participation.
Fund applications will be accepted on a rolling basis beginning in August and reviewed monthly starting in September. Applications will be reviewed through May 2020 based on availability of funds.
Grants will range between $5,000-$10,000; larger proposals will be considered from multi-organization collaborations.
Information on the online application process and funding criteria can be found at growyourgiving.org/grant/metro-kansas-city-census-equity-fund.
