Service Area

The Foundation awards grants to organizations located in and serving the people of the Greater Cedarburg area.

Eligible Organizations

Grants are awarded to non-profit organizations, designated as tax-exempt by the Internal Revenue Service, or occasionally to select government agencies. Grants will not be made to individuals.

Purpose of Grants

The Foundation supports both programs and capital projects that enhance those attributes that make Cedarburg unique. The Foundation considers a broad range of projects, but places priority on projects which:

  • Preserve and enrich Cedarburg’s cultural and historic heritage
  • Enhance Cedarburg’s artistic and aesthetic experiences
  • Provide educational, recreational and community service opportunities for all ages.

Grants for a project will generally be limited to one year. If the project is expected to be ongoing, it is assumed that the agency will develop additional funding sources. In exceptional cases, projects may be supported for more than one year, but generally for not more than two or three years.

The Foundation does not provide funds for lobbying or political purposes and generally does not award grants for annual campaigns, operating budgets or debt service.

Final Reports

All organizations receiving grants must file a final report, as explained in the award letter. The final report confirms that the project was completed and explains the degree to which project’s goals were met. Final reports must be filed for an agency to be eligible for future grants.
