Seed Grants

Since 2004, the Men’s Garden Club has awarded more than seventy-five grants.
The grant program is funded by the proceeds of the annual plant sale

Men’s Garden Club of Omaha Seed and Beautification Grant Purpose: The Men’s Garden Club of Omaha is a civic organization dedicated to the passion of gardening. Its grant program was developed to: 

1) Spread the knowledge and passion of gardening through its members and the members of  the community

2) Support education in horticulture and related fields

3) Undertake sponsorship of beautification of public property while promoting gardening

Description:  Grants will be awarded to “nonprofit” organizations (need not be 501c3) for projects judged to be compatible with the club’s mission statement. The name “Seed Grant” is meant to indicate the monies should be for “start-up” funding for NEW projects, and not to sustain long-term, ongoing projects. 

1. Grants up to $1000 will be awarded ,for supplies and materials associated with the project.

2. Stipends or wages will not be paid with this award.

4. Grants may include a certificate for the Annual Plant Sale in lieu of cash.

5. An organization may receive funding for the same project for two consecutive years.

6. Amount and number of awards will be determined yearly, dependent upon the monies  available each year for disbursement.
