The Green Bay Packers Foundation is seeking applications for its annual grant program. The application period is open until July 1, 2020.
This year, the Foundation's grants will address the focus areas of elderly, homelessness, hunger and human services.
Only organizations whose programs fit the established criteria may apply for and be considered for grants.
Different focus areas are emphasized through the application process each year, and this is the first year of a new three-year grant cycle. In 2021, the focus areas will be arts and culture, athletics and education; in 2022, the focus areas will be animal welfare, civic and community, environmental, health and wellness (including drug/alcohol and domestic violence).
Organizations that are classified as exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code with a valid IRS Tax ID for a minimum of two years and are located in the state of Wisconsin are eligible to apply for a grant. Organizations may only apply for a grant once during the three-year cycle.
Interested applicants can find out if they are eligible to apply for a grant and complete the application online at packers.com/foundation.
All grant applications received will be reviewed by the Green Bay Packers Foundation Trustees, who will finalize the list of grant recipients in September.
Since the Foundation was established in 1986, it has distributed more than $12.68 million for charitable purposes.
The Green Bay Packers Foundation grant program is part of Green Bay Packers Give Back, the Packers' all-encompassing community outreach initiative, which includes the Green Bay Packers Foundation's annual and impact grants, appearances by players, alumni, coaches and staff, cash and in-kind donations, community events, Make-A-Wish visits, football outreach and much more.
