Grants and Nonprofit Services

We are here to help you do good and strengthen Douglas County’s nonprofits. We do this by making grants, hosting training and building organization endowments.

Grants to qualified nonprofits support causes that reflect our donors’ interests in all areas of community life, including:

  • Arts and culture
  • Children and youth
  • Community development
  • Education
  • Environment and animal welfare
  • Heath and Wellness
  • Housing
  • Human services
