Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to Winnebago County, Wisconsin nonprofit organizations and government agencies for programs that support youth development and camp scholarships. Funding is intended to create greater opportunities for children by providing educational experiences, adaptive equipment, and youth services.

Youth Programs

Grants from a variety of youth-related field of interest funds held by the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation typically support projects or programs that:

  • Add to the development of youth through environmental education and/or outdoor learning experiences.
  • Establish new services for youth where there is a documented need.
  • Strengthen existing youth programs that show continued need, especially those that promote volunteerism and/or leadership skill development.
  • Supply adaptive equipment or mobility aids like walkers or wheelchairs to children with disabilities.

Hiwela Youth Camperships

Grants are also awarded to provide scholarships for children in-need to attend camp in order to participate in outdoor learning experiences that encourage youth to better understand and live in harmony with the outdoors. Funding priority is given to overnight camping experiences. The amount of financial assistance provided by a Hiwela Campership to any individual is not to exceed 50% of the cost to attend camp.
