Foundation / Corporation
Grants to Wisconsin nonprofit organizations for projects that enhance community gatherings and programs, and that promote local events in Appleton and Fox Cities communities. Funding is intended for both new and existing projects and activities that demonstrate the potential for growth and future sustainability. Funds may also be granted for infrastructure improvements, including equipment acquisition.
Octoberfest was founded by downtown Appleton retailers and the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce in 1981 to promote their businesses, improve the community image and showcase the downtown area. The Octoberfest planning committee continues this tradition by awarding grants to local nonprofit organizations using proceeds from the prior year's Octoberfest. The Octoberfest committee considers projects that embrace the spirit with which Octoberfest was founded.
