2022 Grant Cycle Changes

Using a new process this year, nonprofits serving the greater Cedarburg area can apply for funding through the Greater Cedarburg Foundation’s 2022 grant program beginning Oct. 22, 2021.

A “letter of intent” process will replace the traditional open grant cycle this year. Initial letters of intent will be due to the Foundation by Nov. 4, 2021. Agencies who are invited to apply for a full proposal will be notified by Nov. 23, 2021.

Organizations considering applying for a grant are strongly encouraged to attend a virtual informational session being hosted by the Foundation at 10 a.m., Oct. 14. Advance registration is not required.

Program areas that will be considered for funding include projects in arts and culture, education, social services for the public, environment, basic needs and more.

To access the grant application and guidelines, visit the Greater Cedarburg Foundation website, cedarburgfoundation.com, click on the “Grants” tab, and then on the link to the “Apply for Grant.” Access to the application can also be found on the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s website.
