Foundation / Corporation
Greater Green Bay Community Foundation (GGBCF), Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region and Oshkosh Area Community Foundation
Grants to Wisconsin nonprofit organizations for collaborative initiatives addressing root causes of poverty. Applicants must contact the appropriate representative prior to applying. Funding will support projects and programs within the service areas of multiple foundations across the state.
Projects must serve residents in two or more service areas of the following community foundations: the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation, Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, or the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation.
The complexity of the project will benefit from each organization’s particular expertise or provided services, or will enable more effective and efficient delivery of the program or services than individual organizations working alone or separately.
