Union Pacific Foundation Offers Funding for Community Programs

"The Union Pacific Foundation accepts grant applications from nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations based in communities served by Union Pacific Railroad. Municipalities located on Union Pacific lines may apply for one-time programs/projects provided the program/project benefits the entire community.

The foundation has a strong interest in promoting organizational effectiveness among nonprofits. To that end, the foundation will dedicate the majority of these grants to help nonprofit organizations build their capacity, increase their impact, and operate more efficiently and effectively. The foundation will be particularly receptive to proposals that fall within the following categories: Community and Civic -- to assist community-based organizations and related activities that improve and enrich the general quality of life in the community, including organizations such as aquariums, botanical gardens, children's and science museums, public libraries, public television and radio, zoos, etc.; Fine Arts -- to create a wider opportunity for the enjoyment of and participation in the visual and performing arts (a limited amount of funding is available for this category, with preference given to those organizations with whom the foundation has an established relationship); Health and Human Services -- to assist organizations dedicated to improving the level of healthcare or providing human services in the community."

Deadline: August 15, 2007
