Announcing Community Action Grant Deadline!

Twice a year, the Whitewater Community Foundation offers Community Action Grants for projects that our community and board of directors believe worthwhile and beneficial to various segments of the population. The Whitewater Community Foundation’s mission is to “enhance quality of life in the Whitewater area via educational, cultural, charitable or benevolent expenditures.” The Foundation provides seed money for nonprofit projects that benefit Whitewater and residents of Whitewater. We look for creative or innovative projects that address community needs and can kick start a project that does not depend upon renewal of funding.

Grant proposals are due on April 30 this year. Decisions for funding will be made by the board of directors by end of the following month. Should this deadline be missed, there will be an opportunity to submit a grant proposal in October of 2017.

In the past, the Foundation has awarded grants in program areas such as after school and summer camp STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) programming for children, playground equipment for children and adults, murals, environmental education, music and entertainment for community events, training for disabled artists, and projects that support community health.
