Funding for local agencies and nonprofits
The Waukesha County Community Foundation will accept grant requests from qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Discretionary funds used to support grants are currently limited. Only requests from organizations serving the people of Waukesha County will be considered.
Grants from the Community Grants Fund will support programs in the following broad program areas:
- Arts and Culture
- Community Development
- Health and Human Services
- Environment and Conservation
- Historic Preservation
Grants will not be made to individuals or for religious, governmental or political purposes. Grants will not be repeated for the same program or purpose in consecutive years.
The Waukesha County Community Foundation does not fund event sponsorship requests. Also, grants will be declined for programs outside of an organization’s core mission.
The Foundation will give preference to proposals that show collaboration among organizations serving similar clients, strengthen the internal operations of an organization, or impact outcomes on a community basis (collective impact). A typical WCCF grant ranges in size from $1,000 – $10,000.
