Racial and Social Justice Grants

In 2021, Stillwater Area Community Foundation awarded a new grant to support projects that address Racial and Social Justice (RSJ) within our communities. Grant applications were measured on five criteria: project purpose, sustainability, community connections, reach, and funding sources.

The $15,000 Racial and Social Justice grant was awarded to Stillwater Area Public Schools’ Early Childhood Family Education program – Parenting for Racial Justice. Click here for a press release on this wonderful program!

Fall Grants

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.

A Healthy Post-Pandemic Community

Our 2021 Fall Grant of $15,000 will be used to support projects that address the post-pandemic health of our communities. We are seeking to support projects that will address the lingering mental and/or physical effects of the pandemic. The press release on this grant opportunity is available here.

Application deadline 9/30/21, award announcement mid November
