Women's Giving Circle Grant


Please note that the Women's Giving Circle grant cycle is NOT the same as the Eau Claire Community Foundation grant cycle.


April 1: Applications for the current year become available.
July 1: Deadline to submit WGC grant applications
Early to Mid November: Grant awards are announced.

WGC grants will be awarded ONLY for requests of up to $6000.

(Grant requests for more than $6000 will not be considered, so please plan your application budget accordingly.)

Programs funded by WGC Grants must be implemented between January 1 and December 31 of the following year.

New this year, in addition to the Program Grant Eligibility and Restrictions, we are also including specific Guidelines for Interpreting and Responding to Questions. This will be helpful as you write an effective answer to each question.

If an organization is funded by the Women's Giving Circle in two consecutive years, its application will not be considered in the third year. However, it can apply again in the fourth year.
