Fund for Hutchinson

Fund for Hutchinson

Truly transforming Reno County, the Fund for Hutchinson is the unrestricted grantmaking fund that allows Hutchinson Community Foundation to address the ever-changing needs of the community. The application process represents the one time of year that the Foundation representatives—board members, community representatives, and staff—hear directly from the community about innovative solutions and critical needs in our communities and select programs to support as they move forward with their work.

Some of the grants are small but mighty, while others are large and far-reaching. Each, though, represents an innovative approach or collaboration, a new efficiency for an established organization, a critical need that requires "just in time" funding, or an opportunity that needs just that bit of local support to leverage great resources for our community.
