Golden Belt Community Foundation accepting Magical Mini Grant applications

Win the $250 Mini Grant Contest. Golden Belt Community Foundation is getting a makeover and its administrators want to see the magic that area residents can add to the community. One grant may be awarded in each of the four counties the foundation serves (Barton, Pawnee, Rush, and Stafford), said foundation Executive Director Christy Tustin. 

To enter, contestants must upload a video explaining why their community project should receive the funding and how it would add magic to their community, making it a better place.  

Record a short and simple video that is at least one minute long, but no longer than five minutes. The ideal project would involve enhancements that are visible in the community. 

To find more information about the application/submission along with other details, check out Golden Belt Community Foundation’s website ( or Facebook page (

“The foundation is excited to see what magic can be added to your community,” Tustin said.  

The Magical Mini Grant contest will be accepting video submissions through Oct. 19. GBCF will announce grant winners for each county on Oct. 26.
