Wright County, IA:

The Wright County Charitable Foundation is extending the 2018 Spring Granting Period, which opened on March 15. Applications will be accepted until 4 p.m. Monday, April 23. Late applications will not be considered.

As a reminder, each grant applicant is required to match a portion of the funds necessary to complete the project; volunteer labor hours can be considered as match, along with the funds needed to complete each project. If possible, applicants should submit their applications before the deadline to allow the grant committee time to conduct a preliminary review of all the applications to ensure all information is correct. Early submissions allow more time should revisions or more information be requested.
