Grant Application Guidelines

Grant Application Guidelines

The Greater Cedarburg Foundation supports projects and programs that help make the greater Cedarburg area unique. The Foundation considers all types of projects, with an emphasis on those that creatively focus on:

▪ Preserving and enriching our cultural heritage
▪ Enhancing our artistic and aesthetic experiences
▪ Providing educational, recreational and community service
opportunities for all ages.

First time applicants

First time applicants must first create an organizational profile before receiving access to the grant application. Not to be confused with the application itself, the profile provides necessary general information about your agency that is not contained in the grant application.
