The Whitefish Bay Civic Foundation was established to promote the betterment of the Village and its residents. In doing so, Civic Foundation is active in the community by supporting and sponsoring community events, projects, and funding organizations that share the same objectives. Our vision is to undertake projects that lessen the burden to Village government and that follow the mission of the organization.

Grant funds may be awarded to individuals, groups or organizations to help fund projects, events or causes that fit our mission.  In order to qualify for a grant, the applicant will be required to submit an application and demonstrate how the request fits within the mission of the Civic Foundation.

Grants are periodically awarded as outlined in the application. Grant requests will be reviewed by the Whitefish Bay Civic Foundation and a decision to approve or deny the request will be made and communicated. There is no guarantee that the grant will be fulfilled, and the Whitefish Bay Civic Foundation may request additional information regarding any request for grant dollars.

The Civic Foundation generally requires multiple financial partners for granted projects.
