Grants to La Crosse, Wisconsin nonprofits and government agencies for projects and programs that respond to community needs. Applicants must contact program staff prior to submitting an application. Funding is designed to serve community needs while responding quickly to changing priorities.

Proposals are accepted for outcome-based projects and programs as well as collaborative projects.

Priority is given to projects that:

- Seek to meet a new or growing need felt by a broad segment of the community.
- Encourage additional funding or matching gifts from other donors.
- Provide realistic plans for follow-on funds from other sources.
- Promote cooperation among agencies, without duplicating services.
- Encourage self-help activities on the part of the population served by the program.
- Enhance or improve agency self-sufficiency or efficiency.
- Yield substantial benefits to the community for the resources invested.

The foundation welcomes grant requests from non-profit organizations serving La Crosse area residents. Grant recipient organizations are tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Grants are not paid to individuals other than scholarships. Grants are made to programs that contribute, in a significant way, to the overall welfare of the people of the greater La Crosse area.

The Foundation does not consider more than one application from the same agency in a twelve-month period.

Except in the case of donor advised or designated funds, the Foundation does not award grants to:
- support ongoing operating expenses of well-established organizations; or support deficit funding;
- fund needs that should more properly be funded in an operating budget of an organization;
- fund indirect, administrative, or overhead costs;
- mature endowment funds;
- sectarian or religious purposes;
- travel for individuals or groups.

Please contact Program Director Jamie Schloegel to discuss the project or program before you apply and to receive the access code for the application.
