Pawhuska Community Foundation (PCF), has announced the opening of a grant application process for 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations serving the Pawhuska region.

PCF is requesting applications from any 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides programs and services to the Pawhuska community. The grant application can be found at www.pawhuskacommunityfoundation.org and must be submitted by Sept. 1.

The foundation is in its 28th year of existence.

Board President Chad Renfro said the PCF has supported many local charitable organizations and projects over the years including Art Maker, LLC, Help Works, the Osage Nation Foundation, Pawhuska Hospital Foundation, Pawhuska Public Schools Foundation, Preserving Arts in the Osage, the Ben Johnson Memorial Project, National Indian Taco Championship and Skate Board Park.

"We welcome your grant applications, and if you are feeling generous, we also welcome your donations," Renfro said. "Information about both the grant application and the donation process can be found at www.pawhuskacommunityfoundation.org. As a board we take great pride and pleasure in serving the Pawhuska community through the funds generated by our generous endowment and with the help of Tulsa Community Foundation.”

PCF seeks to make a difference in the future of Pawhuska by empowering individuals, groups and the organizations to strengthen and sustain the economic base, environment and quality of life in the area, according to a release. Since 1993, PCF has been pursuing this mission through support and funding of local community projects and organizations.

In 2009, PCF became an affiliate of Tulsa Community Foundation (TCF), which has allowed PCF to invest more of its resources into the community and spend less on administrative and operational costs.

TCF, among the largest community foundations in America, is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization that assists nonprofits, corporations, individuals and families with flexible charitable giving solutions. Through the creation of charitable funds, TCF helps donors accomplish their individual philanthropic goals. More information can be found by visiting www.tulsacf.org.
