Grants to Wisconsin nonprofit organizations in eligible regions for special projects, capital projects, or operating support. Funding may be provided for a wide range of program areas, including environment, education, and the arts. Priority will be given to requests for both new and existing projects and programs, and to cases where the Foundation's funds will make a significant impact. Projects must provide a benefit to the greater West Bend area.

Evaluation criteria:

  • Significance to West Bend area residents of the problem(s) addressed
  • Capacity of the agency to respond to the problem(s)
  • Number of people expected to benefit
  • Urgency of need for support
