Grants to Wisconsin nonprofit organizations, schools, and government agencies in eligible locations to address the needs of local residents.

Priority will be given to projects in the following focus areas: arts and culture, basic necessities, children and youth, economic development, education, elderly, environment, health, and services for persons with physical or emotional disabilities. The OAF makes grants to an area that consists of the Oconomowoc Area School District, as well as Wales, Dousman, Ottawa, and Nashotah.

Term of Contract:

Grants will normally be awarded for one year, but occasionally be made for multiple years to ensure proper implementation and development of the program.

Grants for ongoing annual support may be occasionally awarded, particularly when there is a compelling community purpose for doing so. Such grants will usually be made for one or two years, at the board’s discretion; in the case of multiple-year grants, the grant amounts will usually be progressively reduced during the term of the grant.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grants will principally be made only to nonprofit organizations which have been awarded tax-exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service.

Public and private schools are eligible for grants. In both cases grants will be made for programs or resources that enhance educational outcomes, but not for the ongoing support of staff or operating expenses. In addition, private schools should demonstrate that through tuition assistance, or other means, they serve lower-income families. Of particular interest are educational programs that meet the need of special-need students.

Municipal government agencies may also receive grants. Grants will be made for projects that go beyond the core, tax-supported services required to meet the government agency’s public purpose.
