The Papillion Community Foundation uses the funds that we raise to support our community through a charitable grants process. Each year we are able to give back to the community and through a competitive grant application process we are able to assist various organizations and programs. The programs we support provide necessary services that help strengthen the Papillion Community. Please be very specific when writing your grant requests to show how the award would benefit those in Papillion, NE.
