Grants of up to $10,000 to Wisconsin nonprofit organizations for programs that benefit children and youth in eligible communities. Funding is intended to support innovative cultural and environmental programs for children ages 0-18. Eligible applicants are those operating in Dane County.

American Girl’s Fund for Children (FFC) is a catalyst for connecting cultural arts and environmental resources with children. The Fund’s goal is to create a community in which each Dane County, Wisconsin child, regardless of income, learns to regard all art forms and the environment as an integral part of everyday life and learning. In accomplishing this, our children will grow to become stewards of the County’s artistic and natural resources.

The purpose of American Girl’s Fund For Children is to support innovative programming for children ages 0–18 in Dane County. To that end, the Fund will entertain proposals for programs that:

  • Expose children to excellence in arts, culture, entertainment or hands-on education related to arts or the environment;
  • Illustrate collaboration with other local organizations and/or schools in Dane County;
  • Support or complement classroom curriculum;
  • Foster cooperation between children, parents, and educators;
  • Serve primarily children in Dane County;
  • Indicate that a grant from FFC may be leveraged to secure matching grants from other corporations, foundations, individuals, the County, State, or other funding sources.
