WYCF GENERAL GRANTS

WYCF gives priority to nonprofit organizations who:

  • Address an identified community need
  • Partner with other nonprofits or programs to enhance services without duplication
  • Leverage dollars received from WYCF to obtain additional or future funding

*Please note, we do not support lobbying efforts and do not give grants to individuals. Additionally, most applicants are eligible to receive funds only one time within a year after receiving a grant. For example, if an organization received funding in September of 2020, they should not apply again until June of 2021 (to receive funds in Sept. 2021). 

Low Priority is given to:

  • Block grants
  • Capital campaigns
  • Annual campaigns
  • Debt retirement

Still have questions? Feel free to contact WCYF Program Associate Allison Renton (allison@wycf.org) or Director of Programs and Communications Micah Richardson (micah@wycf.org).
