The Funds: Charlinse Foundation sets aside 15% of all net commissions collected. These funds are earmarked for donation to nonprofit organizations in South Central Wisconsin.
Who Receives the Funds? Any nonprofit, tax exempt organization can apply to receive grant funds. We do not award grants to private foundations, nor to projects that serve an exclusively religious or political purpose. School-based programs may apply if they provide services to the community outside of regular school hours.
Priority is given to grassroots projects that build, protect, and strengthen the community through local efforts. Examples might include social services, youth programs, education, diversity programs, and public health projects. Due to limited funds, we are currently focusing our charitable giving on human services projects and organizations.
Timeline: Donation decisions are made quarterly. Deadlines for grant applications are in the chart at right.
