Fall 2021 Grant Cycle

We’re seeking grant proposals from qualified organizations for projects or programs that benefit the community of Waterloo and, in limited situations its vicinity. Grant proposals must detail how funds will improve and benefit our community in one of four areas:

  • health and human services
  • arts and culture
  • education
  • economic development

A total of SIX grants will be awarded up to $5,000 each. (Matching funds are not required, but partnerships are encouraged.) The 6th Grant will be given to an Arts & Culture Applicant. This additional grant is being made possible by a generous donor who has compassion for how much the arts community has endured through the pandemic.

Applications may be submitted to the Foundation offices (USPS or hand-delivered) by Thursday, October 7 at 4 pm. If you hand-deliver your application, please contact us prior to arrival, since our bank lobby doors are locked and office hours are variable.

For more information, contact Erin Tink at erin.tink@wloocommunityfoundation.org or (319) 883-6022.
