    Viking Foundation of Lincoln


    Modest need-based grants directed to individuals (especially children) and families challenged with education, poverty, housing, gender, mental and physical health, and other issues. They especially like to fund proposals for specific activities, projects and initiatives that are creative/innovative, unique and stand-alone in nature. We prefer projects that have a limited (one year or less) time frame.
