Apply for a Grant

Grants

We accept grant requests from nonprofit 501(c)(3) public charities in the Fox Valley region at any time throughout the year. Applicants must apply online, using the process outlined below. Generally, we work with organizations we have a relationship with. Smaller grant requests are typically reviewed monthly, while larger ones are reviewed at quarterly Foundation board meetings. If your organization is awarded a grant, a final report will be required before applying for a future grant.
