Thank you for your interest in applying for a grant from the Las Vegas Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities. As you may know, we are a foundation dedicated to helping children. We coordinate various events throughout the year to raise funds to distribute to worthy non-profit organizations in Las Vegas and the southern Nevada area.

Nonprofit organizations across America, and the communities they serve, have been deeply impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We at SCC Las Vegas have been similarly impacted because of the health safety restrictions placed on public events, which represent the major source of our funding. Due to these factors, SCC cautions applicants to expect significantly fewer funds to be available for grant awards in 2020. We encourage applicants to weigh these considerations before submitting a grant application.

Who May Apply

To apply for a grant, the applicant organization must meet the following requirements:
• Organization must be an existing 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
• Serves children in Las Vegas and/or southern Nevada.
• Service provided to children falls within the mission of Speedway Children's Charities: educational, medical, social, and/or financial need.

How to Apply

Partner Grant applications must be postmarked by Monday, August 31, 2020. Our administrative office is closed, so you MAY NOT deliver your application in person this year.

In addition, applications will not be accepted electronically (fax or email). No exceptions will be made. 

Your application must be mailed to: Speedway Children's Charities, 7000 Las Vegas Boulevard North, Las Vegas, NV 89115 

The Speedway Children's Charities Board of Trustees meets in October to make final decisions on awarding grants. You will be notified in writing whether or not your charity will receive funding in November. Grants will be distributed in December.
