Kohler Foundation’s grant program primarily supports educational and arts initiatives. Geographic preference is Sheboygan County, Wisconsin, followed by small towns in Wisconsin. We rarely, if ever, make grants outside the state of Wisconsin. Eligible grant applicants must be classified as tax-exempt public charities or public institutions (i.e. schools, governmental entities).
Much of our effort is directed to numerous ongoing programs which were initiated many years ago by Kohler Foundation and which we continue to maintain. Our grants, therefore, usually do not exceed $5,000. We do not contribute to operating expenses, capital campaigns, or annual fundraising drives, nor do we provide event sponsorships.
Annual Deadlines for proposals are March 15 and September 15. If your organization wishes to submit a proposal, we ask that you complete our simple application form. You may click here to view the application guidelines and questions, and submit it online.
