Venture Grant Application

UWCL has a long history of grants in the community. Venture Grants are different than our Community Investment Grants.  Venture Grants are for smaller and rural nonprofits that have an operating budget of less than $250,000 and have a limit of $1,000 per request.  We understand that not all of our community agency partners have the same capacity but still continue to do great work in the community.   


Our 2024 Venture Grants will be awarded to agencies providing summer programming for youth and have an educational component.  You must be a 501C3 and complete the application.  The application process will be open until June 20, 2024 at 5pm.  Grants will be announced June 27th.
