Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $7,500 to Wisconsin nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and schools in eligible regions for programs that address community needs. Funding is intended for projects and programs in the areas of the environment, community development, education, arts and culture, health, and human services. Programs and activities must serve residents of the greater Waupaca area.

In addition to the list below of types of requests WACF has traditionally considered, this year, the Foundation will also consider COVID-19 crisis response activities as well as requests for general operating support to help sustain services important to Waupaca residents. (Note: to request general operating support, applicants must have endured unexpected financial losses or disruption to typical revenue streams and/or increased demand for services as a result of the COVID-19 crisis and should explain these circumstances in their application.)
  • Creative new activities or services: New programs, one-time projects, events, exhibits, studies or surveys.
  • Enhancement or strengthening of existing activities: Projects to enhance, expand or strengthen the range, quantity and/or quality of an organization’s programs and services.
  • Small capital investments: Items that are directly related to program delivery or service to clients, such as a refrigerator for a food pantry or equipment to comply with ADA requirements.
  • Recurring events: Exhibits, presentations, performances or non-fundraising events that occur on a periodic basis.  Grants will only support the same program or project for a maximum of three years.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Organizations may request up to $7,500 per application, and may submit up to two applications.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Organizations eligible to receive grants from the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region are those determined by the IRS to be public charities. This encompasses most charitable, scientific, social service, educational and religious organizations described in § 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(1), (a)(2), or (a)(3) of the tax code, and private operating foundations. The Foundation will not normally make grants to private non-operating foundations. Grants may also be made to units of government (this includes Native American tribal governments) for public purposes. Organizations that are not public charities may apply through a fiscal sponsor. Organizations must serve residents of the Foundation's service area including Outagamie, Calumet, Shawano, Waupaca and/or northern Winnebago counties. Additional eligibility requirements may apply to units of government and schools; see below.

Eligibility for Units of Government (city, county, township, etc.)
The Foundation will consider funding for units of government when the request for support is judged to be an effective means to address a priority issue. A grant from the Foundation may help draw attention to a new issue, leverage additional funding, offer more flexible funds than are typically available in a governmental budget, or provide seed money until program funding can be included in the governmental budget. The Foundation will not typically issue grants for the general operating support of a government program.

Eligibility for Schools
The Foundation will consider funding for public, charter and private/parochial Pre-K-12 schools and post-secondary educational institutions, when the request for support is judged to be an effective means to address a priority issue, particularly when the issue addresses the needs of a substantial or underserved portion of the community. Requests will only be considered if they are unique and community-oriented, or for pilot programs with potential to be sustainable and replicable. The Foundation typically will not issue grants for the general operating support of a school system, school or school program.

The Foundation will consider funding for programs, services or initiatives that address unmet human needs through non-sectarian organizations or collective efforts of faith-based organizations that draw support from the community at large to meet a demonstrated community need, and that refrain from promoting a specific journey of faith. Requests will be considered from individual faith-based organizations or organizations with a specific journey of faith as an aspect of its mission only if the program, services or initiatives do not promote that specific journey of faith or include activities such as religious worship, instruction or proselytization. In making its determination for eligibility, the Foundation will consider not only the mission of the applicant but the participant experience and the intended outcome(s) for the program, service or activity, for the target participants and/or audience.

Not Funded:
- Organizations that don't serve residents in the greater Waupaca Area.
- Organizations or needs not eligible per the grant policies listed above.
