Faith-based groups are welcome and encouraged to apply, but grant funds may not be used to advance any particular religious belief. No one may be denied participation in a project that is funded because they do not hold a particular religious belief.

Any equipment purchased as a part of the grant must be owned by a 501(c)(3) public charity or donated to one after the completion of the project.

Grant funds may be used to pay salaries, but only in unique circumstances which must be explained in the application.

Applicants that apply under the umbrella of a 501(c)(3) public charity, school or government agency will receive a check payable to the organization shortly after the grant is approved. Applicants that do not operate under the umbrella of a charity, school or government agency will be reimbursed for expenses after receipts and other documentation are presented as proof of actual expenditures.

Pre-Application Information:

Application Due Dates:
Thursday, October 1, 2020 at 4:00 PM
Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at 4:00 PM

Handwritten responses are acceptable.

For applications submitted by high school and middle school age students, the application itself must be completed by the students. For younger children, an adult may complete the application in consultation with the youth. The idea is to ensure that the project is largely initiated by the youth themselves.

As a part of the review process, at least one youth representative from your group is required to present your project idea to the approximately 7 Reviewers at a meeting in Sturgeon Bay on the corresponding Youth Presentation date noted. You will be informed of the location of the meeting and the specific time slot for your presentation shortly after you apply.

The Youth Presentation should not exceed 5 minutes and will be followed by questions from the committee. High school age students are expected to make their presentation without any assistance from an adult. Middle school age children may be prompted and assisted by an adult. Elementary school age children should be available to answer questions, but an adult may make the presentation.

Applicants will be informed of the final decision within 2 days after their Youth Presentation is made.

Youth Presentation to Service Club Coalition Reviwers:
Wednesday, October 21, 2020 begins at 5:00 PM
Wednesday, December 16, 2020 begins at 5:00 PM
Wednesday, March 17, 2021 begins at 5:00 PM
Wednesday, May 19, 2021 begins at 5:00 PM

Only one application per youth group will be accepted in each grant cycle. However, a charity may have several different youth groups which apply under the auspices of the same charity so long as different children are involved in each of the youth groups.
