The Suzanne & Walter Scott Foundation welcomes grant applications for capital or program support. Its focus is on projects that assist a nonprofit organization to elevate its capacity to serve the community.

The Foundation’s grant making activities and program-related investments center on three major themes

  1. Developing community spaces 
  2. Investing in the next generation of leaders 
  3. Empowering youth through higher education 

We seek philanthropic partnerships with nonprofits that share our core values.

The Foundation’s geographic area of primary emphasis is the Omaha metropolitan area (including Harrison, Mills and Pottawattamie counties in Iowa) and all of Greater Nebraska, plus causes outside that region in which the Scotts have had personal involvement. Please review the Grant Guidelines and Procedures prior to application.
