As our endowment continues to grow, so will our capacity for grant making. Every fall, Stillwater Area Community Foundation issues grants to area nonprofit organizations. The focus of our grants varies from year to year. Sometimes we have an unrestricted call for applications. Other years, based on the input we receive from community leaders and area nonprofits, the foundation opts to narrow the application process to focus on some pressing challenges.
Themes and details for our Fall Grants will be announced over the summer. Application will be available to download on this page after September 1.
