Kentucky Area Grants
Thank you for your interest in applying for a grant from the Kentucky Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities. As you may know, we are an organization dedicated to helping children improve their quality of life, and through our various events and activities each year, we strive to raise funds and provide grants to non-profit children's organizations in Kentucky, Southwest Ohio and Southeast Indiana.
APPLICATIONS FOR 2018 ARE NO LONGER BEING ACCEPTED, AS THE DEADLINE HAS PASSED FOR THE CURRENT YEAR. PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDAR AND CHECK BACK IN THE SPRING OF 2019 FOR THE UPDATED APPLICATION, DEADLINE, ETC
Due to the large volume of applications received, Speedway Children's Charities cautions applicants that SCC cannot fulfill every grant request or guarantee full funding of the requested amount. Any application that is not complete when received by Speedway Children's Charities or is postmarked after the current year's deadline will not be accepted or reviewed.
Each year's updated application is usually posted online in April and must be completed, postmarked and mailed by the end of August. Applications are then pre-screened to determine eligibility and ensure all information has been received for the final review. The Kentucky Chapter Board of Trustees meets in early November to make final decisions on the awarding of grants. Following that meeting, all applicants are notified in writing whether or not their charity will receive funding that year.
SCC will notify every organization who applies for a grant of its decision when it is made. Grants are distributed by Speedway Children's Charities at its annual Night of Giving, a special event for grant recipients at Kentucky Speedway in early December.
Thank you again for your interest in Speedway Children's Charities. We wish you only the best in all your endeavors on behalf of children in our community!
