Come learn more about the Community Foundation’s exciting new approach to our Foundation-directed grantmaking. Formerly known as Unrestricted or Discretionary, the Bright Idea Fund is a permanent fund which preserves the quality of life in Calumet, Outagamie, Shawano, and Waupaca counties and the Neenah-Menasha area of Winnebago county.

This informational session will highlight the following:

  • Learn more about our specific focus areas: Arts & Culture, Basic Needs & Self Sufficiency, Community Development, Environmental Sustainability and Nonprofit Effectiveness.
  • Learn about the priorities within each of the five focus areas.
  • Revised guidelines, grant amounts, and online applications in our new grant portal.
  • A new grant process that offers early communication and brainstorming with Foundation staff.
  • Regular opportunities to share your ideas with other nonprofits leaders in an informal setting.
  • Grant workshops.

We are looking forward to partnering with you to help develop and support your bright ideas.
