Grants

The St. Croix Valley Foundation’s competitive grants programs are the result of the generosity of many wonderful donors who wished to support the people and the communities of the St. Croix Valley.

SCVF awards grants through the following grant programs:

Music Education –  Projects that enhance the quality of school-based music education programs and enrich student’s musical skills and appreciation.  The online application is now closed.  The next due date is September 30, 2019 with funding decisions made in November.

Valley Arts Initiative – Projects that increase public understanding of, and access to, an array of artistic activities.  The online application is now closed.  The next due date is February 3, 2019 with funding decisions made in April.

Health and Wellness – Projects that tackle the challenge of childhood obesity by exploring the interactions between physical activity, healthy eating and the rich, natural resources the St. Croix region has to offer — its parks, farms or gardens, open spaces, forests, trails, lakes, and rivers.  The online application is now closed.  The next due date is February 3, 2019 with funding decisions made in April.

Other Interest Areas – SCVF will consider funding projects outside of these grant programs, although funding is very limited. If your organization is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and would like to be considered through this process, please contact Angie Pilgrim at 715-386-9490 or via email.

An organization is limited to one proposal for each grant program. An applicant may submit a proposal for a different SCVF grant program during the same grant cycle if they are eligible.
