Nell Newman Foundation Provides KRC Grassroots Programming Support
The Kansas Rural Center is the recent recipient of a $5,000 challenge grant from the Nell Newman Foundation to support KRC’s grassroots educational activities. To receive the grant, KRC had to match it dollar for dollar. During its October Match Challenge Campaign, KRC raised $8100 to more than meet the grant challenge.
The funds will be used to support the following this fall and into 2018:
* Educational meetings or forums on emerging issues
* Policy Watch: Our weekly e-updates on Kansas policy issues at the Statehouse during the session, and public forums/town hall meetings on critical policy issues;
* Federal farm bill: monitoring the debates and discussions in D.C. and holding educational meetings;
* and General support for our communications efforts to provide critical information on food and farm issues and promote a sustainable food and farming system.
Thanks to the Nell Newman Foundation and to all who contributed to the match campaign!
