2020 Fall Grantmaking Suspended

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial equity issues facing our community, MCF has suspended its Fall 2020 community impact grant round. Instead, MCF will be working proactively to support these two critical areas.

MCF is committed to the health and strength of both the community and the many nonprofits doing critical work in Dane County. Discover resources to help your nonprofit survive the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have any questions about grant proposals, please contact Tom Linfield


Your grant is not about what you are going to do but what you're going to change."
