The Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin is accepting grant applications for its 2015 Community Grants Program. Applications will be considered for funding through Foundation family funds, mission funds and donor-advised funds.
Grant applications are limited to non-profit agencies and organizations exempt from federal taxation under Section 501(C) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and/or established citizen committees wishing to complete a community project for area enhancement.
The Foundation operates without discrimination as to age, religion, sex, or national origin in considering applications and awards grants only to agencies and organizations that likewise do not discriminate.
Preference will be given to projects and programs that:
· Support the Foundation’s goals of helping people, enhancing education, enriching arts and culture, contributing to wellness, and improving the environment.
· Respond to current and emerging needs or gaps of services in Central Wisconsin.
· Demonstrate an ongoing and/or increasing need in the community; provide a new program or project that is needed and not replicated in the community; strengthen volunteer participation and citizen involvement in community concerns.
Grant awards are announced each October. An application is required. The deadline for all grant applications is August 15, 2015.
