Our competitive grants program is strategic and responsive to the ever-changing needs of the greater Green Bay community. We fund projects that work to improve the quality of life in our service area and support collaboration among nonprofit organizations.
Here are the 5 steps to our grants process
- Learn About our Grants Programs
If your project addresses a need or opportunity in the community, you should review our grants programs to determine which grant best aligns with the goals of the project.
- Reach Out
You or a representative of your organization should visit with our staff to share the idea, ask and answer questions, and receive feedback. Contact us at 920-432-0800 for a meeting.
- Apply for a Grant
Depending on the grant program, either apply online or via a written application.
- Await Grants Team Review
Our staff will review the applications and share them with the grants team, a group of community volunteers that includes board members and other community experts. The grants team reviews the applications and makes funding recommendations to the Community Foundation's Board of Directors.
- Receive Confirmation
The Board of Directors reviews the grants team's recommendations and approves final awards. We share funding decisions with applicants prior to any public announcement.
