Grant Applicant - applied in 2020

We have received funding from the La Crosse Community Foundation for a number of projects over the years, and most recently, in February of 2020. The Foundation works hard to be a strategic partner to community groups and nonprofits - they take interest in our work, participate in activities to best understand the needs of the community, and educate their donors on those needs. This is why they are highly effective at funding high-impact projects, big and small.

It is best to contact them prior to applying. Their staff are very open and honest on thoughts and suggestions for your application. They will also continue to work with you throughout the process and offer feedback if given enough advance notice.

Develop a relationship with them. Staff need their egos stroked. Board, and many of their donors, are not well versed in modern granting practices. Grants are always short-termed. Will give to things like an ill-placed coffee shop developed by people not in the business. Magical thinking.
