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 SCVF is no longer accepting applications for the Music Education Competitive Grant Program. Applications were due on October 7, 2017 and funding decisions will be made in December.
Valley Arts Initiative – Projects that increase public understanding of, and access to, an array of artistic activities. The online application is now open with a deadline of February 4, 2018. Funding decisions will be made in April. Please click here to begin the application process.
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 open with a deadline of February 4, 2018. Funding decisions will be made in April. Please click here to begin the application process.
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.
