The Rural and Indigenous Communities mini-grant is designed to help rural and indigenous communities develop or enhance volunteer, mentor and civic engagement initiatives. Projects may enhance initiatives already in place or develop new ones.
For this grant, “rural communities” means those locations that have a census population of less than 10,000. “Indigenous communities” means those locations that are connected to federally recognized Native American tribes.
Examples of such projects include, but are not limited to:
All entities must have an Employer Identification Number (EIN), Unique Entity Identification (UEI) Number AND must have an active registration in the System for Award Management (SAM) prior to applying.

The Give Back Kansas Challenge is an eight-week challenge that engages Kansans in employer-supported volunteering, both during and outside the workday. The Kansas Volunteer Commission and Volunteer Kansas are excited to co-partner in this challenge because much research shows the connection between employer-supported volunteering and improved employee engagement, employee wellness, organizational commitment, job satisfaction, and retention. There is also research connecting employee engagement with increased profitability and productivity.
There is no cost to participate, and the challenge is open to ANY employer in Kansas (for-profit, non-profit, education system, and government.)
If you have questions, please contact the Kansas Volunteer Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org or (785) 296-3163.
