Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 Wisconsin to nonprofit groups and arts organizations in eligible locations to support arts programming for the local community. Funding is intended for arts-related educational opportunities, public activities, and programs. The geographic scope of this opportunity includes Winnebago County, Waushara County, Green Lake County, and the city of Ripon.

Programming grants support the creation and presentation of arts in the local community. Proposed projects can be any artistic discipline or combination of artistic media. Priority will be given to innovative arts-related collaborations between arts groups, artists, venues, community groups, or area residents.

Eligible grant proposals will:

  • Enhance local arts programming and arts educational opportunities.
  • Involve an activity that is open to the public such as an exhibition, a performance, a workshop, a residency, a lecture/demonstration, or a publication. A fee for admission or publication may be charged.

Examples of eligible activities include, but are not limited to:

  • A theater presents multiple productions and educational programming throughout the year including residencies.
  • A museum or gallery holds an exhibition or community arts event.
  • A performing arts organization presents a dance, music, or theater performance.
  • A community nonprofit group coordinates an arts-based community celebration, festival, or concert.
  • A university department offers an annual art film and video festival for community and university audiences.
  • A literary organization presents a series of poetry readings, a books festival, and/or produces a literary journal featuring local poets.
