Each year, we make grants to organizations providing services benefiting Whidbey Island. There are several different types of grants your organization could apply for, all of which are listed below.

Annual Grant Cycle

The 2023 Annual Grant Cycle is now closed. Please check back in the future for additional grant opportunities.

Each year, Whidbey Community Foundation awards grants through an annual grant cycle. Awards are granted to organizations providing services that support Whidbey Island. The Annual Grant Cycle is supported by multiple funds including our Foundation Fund, field-of-interest funds, and donor-advised funds. In order to respond to the community’s specific needs, distributions from the funds are pooled and aligned directly with the Annual Grant Cycle’s categories.

Our ongoing work in grantmaking, asset development, and community leadership is focused on supporting organizations that meet the needs of our community and work toward creating lasting positive change.

If you have questions about the grant process, contact WCF at info@whidbeyfoundation.org, or call us at 360-660-5041.

As WCF grows through investments and gifts from donors and businesses, we will continue to establish a variety of funds to make financial grants to Whidbey Island nonprofits. Stay up to date on when and how we will solicit proposals and distribute grants! Sign up for our email list at the bottom of the page.
