The Winneconne Area Community Foundation offers two competitive grant opportunities for charitable organizations serving Winneconne residents.

Grants from the Winneconne Area Community Impact Fund support specific projects or new programs for which a moderate amount of grant money can make a significant impact on an area of need. Grants are made for a broad range of purposes to a wide variety of charitable organizations in the focus areas of arts and culture, community development, education, environment, health and human services.

Grants from the Winneconne Basic Needs Fund are invested in programs that meet the basic needs, including food, clothing and shelter, of Winneconne area residents.

To be eligible to receive grants from the Community Foundation, organizations must have been determined by the IRS to be public charities. This encompasses most charitable, scientific, social service, educational and religious organizations described in § 501(c)(3) of the tax code, as well as government agencies. Organizations that are not public charities may apply through a fiscal sponsor. Grants will NOT fund:

  • Individuals
  • Endowment campaigns
  • Capital campaigns
  • Programs promoting religious activities
  • Political or lobbying activities
