Community Fund Applications


2023 Community Fund Applications

Organizations that are not Registered Charities or Qualified Donees must apply in partnership with a Qualified Donee who will act as the fiduciary agent for the project, meaning they will sign the funding agreement and manage the funding on behalf of the Non-Qualified Donee.  The application must be filled out naming the Registered Charity or Qualified Donee as the Lead Applicant and the financial documentation requested for uploading will be the Lead Applicant’s.

Application Opens January 18 – Deadline February 8, 2023

Funded organizations from previous years are only eligible to apply in the current year if the report from previous funding has been submitted by the required deadline. Failure to submit a complete and approved report by the required deadline will result in the organization being ineligible to apply for funding from UWNL for two years
