Grant Opportunities

Get help addressing community needs through grants available to nonprofit organizations in our service area.

Foundation-Directed
Donor-Directed
Families of Funds

We manage more than 1,300 charitable funds. All of them may only award grants to public charities (including most educational and government entities) as defined by the IRS. Listed here are the select few that award grants through a competitive application process, rather than recommendation of the donors.

  • Foundation-Directed grants are awarded from unrestricted funds donors chose to set up to award grants at the discretion of our board, through staff and volunteer committees. These competitive grant programs are designed around five focus areas: Arts & Culture, Basic Needs, Community Development, Environmental Sustainability and Nonprofit Effectiveness.
  • Donor-Directed competitive grants reflect the donors’ giving priorities, sometimes using a volunteer committee to evaluate requests.
  • Families of Funds support an area of common interest, including annual competitive grant awards by regional families of funds in Chilton, Clintonville, Shawano and Waupaca.
