2020 Grant Impacts
The work of the Winneshiek County Community Foundation (WCCF) could not happen without our partnerships. The WCCF Governing Committee thanks our local nonprofit organizations, donors, fundholders, and other community stakeholders who help us strengthen Winneshiek County and make it a more vibrant place for everyone to live, work, and play!
While we aren't able to gather together in person to celebrate our 2020 grant awards, it is still important to us to recognize and share the impacts being made from the $133,897 in discretionary grant funding awarded to 32 nonprofit projects this year.
Watch the video below to hear from Marcia McKelvey, Chair of the WCCF, and to learn more about this year's grant-funded projects.
COVID-19 Disaster Response Fund
Grants are not currently available. The process will reopen as more funds become available.
The Winneshiek County COVID-19 Disaster Response Fund provides support to organizations assisting in the response and recovery efforts of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The intent of the fund is to be responsive to nonprofits serving Winneshiek County that are providing basic needs services and organizations working with individuals and families who have been disproportionately impacted by the public health and economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.
This fund has been established to support local response efforts. Online donations can be made or fundholders can grant from their charitable fund.
Grant funds are not available at this time. All funds have currently been expended. As additional funding becomes available, this process will reopen. Please continue to check this page. Our goal is to continue to support our nonprofit partners serving those impacted by this pandemic.
