Funding for big needs and big dreams

Improving the quality of life in our community takes a network of strong nonprofits and community groups, and we are proud to invest in their vision, passion and expertise to make it happen.

Together with our donors, we average more than $3 million annually in grants to an estimated 200 nonprofit organizations locally, nationally, and internationally.

Our most notable source of grants is the Fund for Hutchinson, an unrestricted grantmaking fund that allows us to meet the ever-changing needs of our community. Each fall we select and fund programs demonstrating innovative ideas or critical needs, which can range from health and human services, to the arts, to parks and nature. We also administer other grants that focus on specific areas of interest.
