By Invitation Only
The Bob and Anna Lou Schaberg Foundation offers grant and gift programs to selected nonprofits by invitation only. The grant program has a pool of area nonprofits that provide community services in the funding priorities. The gift program includes smaller nonprofits, those that might move into the grant pool, and organizations that fall within the founder’s interests.

- Members of the grant pool are eligible to apply 2 years in a row and then rotate out of the pool for the third year.
