Grant Information & Deadlines

Sower Grant Disbursements

The Sowers Club accepts Grant applications three times a year.  Deadlines are February 15, June 15, and September 15. You must have a 501(c)3 status for five years to apply for a Sowers grant. Upon submission, please include a copy of the "Letter of Determination" regarding your agency's 501(c)3 status and a copy of your annual report or current balance sheet outlining your administrative costs.  These documents can be emailed to info@thesowersclub.com.

Grant Applications can be mailed to:  The Sowers Club of Lincoln, Inc., 1701 S. 17th Street, Suite 1H, Lincoln, NE  68502

Once a grant is submitted, the Sowers Grant Committee will review your grant in detail. Their recommendations will then be given to the Board of Directors for final approval at the Board's next regularly scheduled meeting. You are then notified by mail whether your application has been accepted or denied. If denied, you are welcome to apply during another grant cycle. This process takes approximately 30-45 days from the deadline date. 

Please note that every grant received is reviewed based on its own merits. There are guidelines for our giving listed under “Priorities in Giving” on this website.

We appreciate your time and effort in submitting a grant proposal for review. May we all continue to help serve our community and those in need.
