Now Accepting Applications for 2022 Community Grants

The Woodbury Community Foundation is once again proud to offer Community Grants to invest in local nonprofits which are making a difference in our community. 

WCF will give special consideration to funding nonprofit projects that address one of four strategic focus areas that have been identified by the community as areas of local concern in 2022. They include: 

  • Improve community health and well-being 
  • Reduce hunger, especially for underserved local families  
  • Increase public safety 
  • Expand youth development

 WCF is committed to addressing racial and economic disparities. Proposals that demonstrate they foster inclusiveness and address disparities will be given priority. 

Our 2022 Grants Program will fund grants of up to $1,000-5,000 in the four categories for qualifying nonprofits or government entities, including schools or community organizations, such as coalitions or a collaborative. 

Grant application forms are available HERE. Mail your completed application and narrative to our office at 724 Bielenberg Drive, Suite #129 in Woodbury, MN 55125. Grant applications are due by 5:00 pm on Friday, July 22, 2022.
