2018 WGCF GRANTS
Wisconsin Garden Club Federation announces the 2018 Grant Program.
One of the benefits of belonging to the Wisconsin Garden Club Federation (WGCF) is the ability to receive support and funding for WGCF club related projects. The WGCF Grant Committee is very pleased to announce that it is accepting applications from its member garden clubs for grants up to $250. In addition the program is being extended to allow Districts to apply for a Grant on the basis that a Garden Club and a District do not apply for a grant for the same project.
Grants are not designed to support annual operating expenses but may be used either to start a new program or provide matching funds to contribute to the extension of an existing program. Please note that it is expected that the Club or District applying for the grant will actively participate in the project. Projects where the money is passed on to another organization without any involvement of WGCF members will not be funded.
Specifically, grants are designed to help local garden clubs with projects that will enhance:
- Community beautification
- Horticultural education
- Community gardening
- Environmental stewardship
- Gardening for good
The application deadline for a 2018 WGCF Grant is midnight, March 31, 2018. Awards will be announced at the annual WGCF business meeting on April 26th in Wausau. Meeting attendance is not required. Projects should be completed and a feedback report sent by November 16th, 2018.
The grant application form and project completion form can be found at the following link on the WGCF web site https://www.wisconsingardenclub.org/awards/grants/
If you have any questions about the grant program, these should be directed to Roger Greathead either by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 608-692-1816.
We hope many WGCF clubs and Districts will find this program beneficial to their members and local community, and we look forward to supporting your project.
