Nonprofits, schools, municipalities, and charities serving Chippewa County are encouraged to apply for funding from the Community Foundation of Chippewa County during its latest grant cycle, which opens Monday, Aug. 28.
Nonprofits are encouraged to submit applications requesting amounts ranging from $300 to $6,000 for projects that support one of these charitable needs categories: arts and culture, community development, education, health and human services, or environment and animal welfare. Those new to the grant application process may request to join a 30-minute webinar hosted by the foundation on either Tuesday, Aug. 29, or Friday, Sept. 8.
Two funds are available to receive grant applications, the Community Needs and the Northwestern Bank School Mini-Grant Fund. Awards will be disbursed for use in 2024.
The Community Foundation awarded $79,802 to qualified applicants through the Community Needs Grant competitive grant cycle in 2022-23. Grants and disbursements are based on a portion of investment earnings from endowment funds and other gifts received. The Northwestern Bank School Mini-Grants program awarded a total of $3,859 to third- through eighth-grade educators last year. Public and private school educators are encouraged to submit applications for projects requesting up to $350 each. Mini-Grants support innovative learning and motivational activities or service-learning projects for students.
All applications are available at yourlegacyforever.org. Submissions are due by 4pm Thursday, Oct. 5. Community Needs Grant applicants will receive notice of determination in January, while Northwestern Bank School Mini-Grant applicants will receive a notice of determination in December. Project work can take place in 2024 or after a project is awarded.
