FAF Grants for Non-Profit Organizations
The Fennimore Area Foundation is pleased to announce its semi-annual application period for awarding grants in Spring 2017. The Fennimore Area Foundation is interested in providing assistance to groups, projects or activities promoting community wellness, services to or facilities for Fennimore area children, or other endeavors falling within its charitable mission. Total funds to be granted will be up to $2,500 to one recipient or divided among any number of recipients.
The Fennimore Area Foundation will not fund the following: individual travel expenses or seminars; salaries, wages, benefits or other employee related costs; recurring expenses, except “start-up costs”; operating expenses including staff, rent payments, lease payments, and utilities; participation in capital campaigns or endowment funds; political causes, candidates and lobbying efforts; individuals, including scholarships and personal benefits; debt incurred or purchases made prior to grant award notification.
Because the Foundation is a non-profit organization, grant awards must follow certain guidelines and grants may only be awarded to qualifying non-profit organizations. Applicants receiving awards will be expected to submit a brief report or summary of the completed or on-going project or activity receiving a grant within six months of its receipt. The Foundation sees part of its purpose being an incubator of community-wide participation in making Fennimore a better place to live, work and play. When ideas or visions focused on this goal require nurturing, the Foundation sees itself as a source for assistance to the extent it can assist.
To be considered, applications must be received by the Foundation or postmarked no later than May 8, 2017. Those interested in submitting a grant application are invited to complete the application form and mail it to the Fennimore Area Foundation (FAF) at P.O. Box 134, Fennimore, WI 53809. Prospective applicants not yet prepared to make a grant request are hereby advised that grant periods are expected to be announced semi-annually. Good luck!
