There are three (3) grant cycles for 2024:
All grant applicants must have a completed organizational profile at the Greater Milwaukee Foundation portal. First-time applicants will need to create a new organizational profile before receiving access to the grant application. Not to be confused with the application itself, the profile provides necessary general information about your agency that is not contained in the grant application. For questions regarding the grant process or proposal development, please contact Eloiza Altoro, Fund Advisor, at at email@example.com .
The Fund Advisor does not provide consultation or other contract services to organizations that are eligible to apply to the Nonprofit Management Fund.
Review eligibility and the policies and guidelines for application requirements and limitations.
Applications that include a request greater than $10,000 may automatically be denied. Grant requests over $8,500 will require an organizational financial contribution, in addition to the funds provided by the Nonprofit Management Fund.
Grant decisions are made approximately 30 days following the closing of the online application. Applicants will be contacted for clarification when needed. Funds will be distributed within a few weeks of the grant start date. Please plan accordingly for the grant start date and payment of vendor invoices.
Note: As of July 1, 2022, the Nonprofit Management Fund (NMF) will be using a new online application system. You will need to create a new individual account and connect to an existing organization if the organization has applied or received a grant from the Nonprofit Management Fund in the past. If you are an organization that has never applied for an NMF grant, you will need to create a new organizational profile in addition to an online account. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or require technical assistance.
