News and Events
What would you do if you were given up to $10,000 to make our community a better place? This year will mark a decade of community projects that have received funding through Stillwater Area Community Foundation’s Great Idea Competition.
Previous winners have used grants to launch a wide range of projects: planting a pollinator garden, opening a dog park, spiffing up utility boxes with the work of local artists, and making the Main Street stairs more beautiful. Last year’s winner is giving hundreds of area school kids the opportunity to spend a day on the St. Croix River.
