The Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin will open its online Community Grants application portal on July 1.

The Community Foundation supports programs and projects that “align with their mission to improve the counties of Portage and Waushara by helping people, enhancing education, enriching arts and culture, contributing to wellness and improving the environment,” according to a news release from the organization.

Awards are granted to organizations based on community need, the number of people being served, and the organization’s proven collaboration within the community. In 2018, the Community Foundation funded over $255,000 in local projects and programs in Portage and Waushara counties.

Grant applications are available at www.cfcwi.org through August 15, 2019. Recipients will be announced in October.
