Three Questions to Ask Before Applying for a Grant

1. When can I apply for a grant?

 
Application Deadline DatesNotification Dates
June 15September 15
December 15March 15

Other specific guidelines may apply for specific grants.

2. Am I eligible to receive a grant?

  • Nonprofit organizations exempt from federal taxation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Confirm your nonprofit status here.
  • On occasion, to public/governmental agencies.
  • Grants are not made to individuals or for the purpose of supporting political campaigns. 

3. How much can I request?

Most grant amounts awarded are between $1,000-$10,000, with other amounts considered. An organization may receive full funding, partial funding, or be denied funding. In some cases, additional conditions may be attached to funding approval. If you are uncertain as to how much to request, we encourage you to contact staff to discuss request amounts (307-721-8300 | allison@wycf.org | micah@wycf.org).

WYCF  accepts one application per organization for any given grant deadline and a final report must be submitted prior to submitting a new grant request. Additionally, a grantee shall limit their application to one time per year, based on the submission date unless granted permission otherwise. For example, a grantee submitting an application in December of 2022 and receiving funds in March of 2023 may not reapply until December of 2023.
