Imperial is a progressive community with many hardworking, creative, and generous residents. Our residents dream big, and work together to help bring those dreams to reality. The Imperial Community Foundation Fund has been blessed with the opportunity to assist many organizations and individuals in achieving their goals and aspirations. Here's a small sampling of just a few of the many projects we have been privileged to support in recent years.
The Imperial Community Foundation Fund awarded a major grant to the the new TeamMates chapter at Chase County Schools. ICFF was chosen one of TeamMates Sponsors of the Year at the banquet featuring speaker Tom Osborne, who founded TeamMates with his wife, Nancy.
The ICFF annually gifts personalized, full-size mailboxes to the graduating seniors. The mailboxes are decorated with a message encouraging the students to spread their wings but to remember their hometown cares and hopes they'll consider returning to Imperial.

The Imperial Community Foundation Fund helped meet necessary fundraising goals to build a new swimming pool and a facility for locker rooms for the Chase County Schools athletic teams. This project brought together several entities and levels of government to achieve a common goal.

Imperial was fortunate to be chosen as the launch site for Hear Nebraska's Good Living Tour. The Imperial Community Foundation contributed a grant to bring three Nebraskan bands to Imperial to perform a free, all-ages concert to the public. Imperial had the best turn out in the state! In addition to the fun evening, our friends at Hear Nebraska made a video about what exactly makes Imperial such a great home for young people. Please click here to view that video.
The ICFF has regularly contributed grants to the Science Camps Offer Rewarding Experiences (S.C.O.R.E.) Camp, giving hundreds of elementary school children a fun, hands-on approach to exploring the wonders of science. To learn more about S.C.O.R.E. Camp, please click here.
