Grants to Minnesota and Wisconsin nonprofit organizations for programs that provide social support services and that serve children and youth, including personal development activities. Funding is also provided for health-related information and services, and educational opportunities and enrichment for the general community.

The Foundation will only consider the following types of programs and organizations if services are provided in the St. Croix Valley – Washington County in Minnesota and Pierce, Polk and St. Croix counties in Wisconsin:

- Special projects or programs in public schools
- Programs for individuals with developmental or physical disabilities
- Programs for seniors
- Public/civic projects and activities

Grants awarded only to qualified charitable organizations that are designated as tax exempt under Internal Revenue Service Code 501(c)(3) and are not classified as private foundations.

The Foundation’s primary geographic focus area is the St. Croix Valley: Washington County in Minnesota and Pierce, Polk and St. Croix Counties in Wisconsin. Programs in St. Paul, Minnesota unduplicated in the St. Croix Valley and utilized by St. Croix Valley residents may also be considered.

From time to time the Foundation may consider programs in other parts of the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area and Greater Minnesota. Please contact the Program Director prior to submitting a proposal to determine if the program might be of interest to the Foundation.

The Foundation does not make loans, and does not provide grants or scholarships to individuals. The Foundation also does not provide grants for lobbying activities, fundraising dinners and events, or travel.
