The Emergency Survival Grant Program – United States
La Crosse Community Foundation is inviting proposals for the Emergency Survival Grant Program to provide unrestricted funds to nonprofits to offset pandemic-related revenue losses and expenses. This grant opportunity was created over the summer to help charitable organizations in La Crosse County survive the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
(Ad) What tools do you need to raise funds for your organization?
A grants database, a donor search option, sample proposals, a library of guidebooks on how to raise funds, a grants map, a deadline calendar, training from fundraising experts and an alert system to give you timely information about new opportunities. We have all of these in our Premium Membership service – now available at 50% discount. $49.99 per year only. Click here!
Funding decisions will be made primarily based on two factors: 1) the ability to show with financial records that your organization is significantly impacted financially by the pandemic; and, 2) the feasibility that the amount requested will help. Grants are strictly for operational costs and not to fund programs.
The Foundation anticipates grant awards will primarily range on average between $5,000 and $30,000.

All charitable organizations that primarily serve La Crosse County are eligible to apply, with the exception of large public and/or charitable organizations (hospitals, city/village/town governments, county government, school districts, and universities) and other funders.
If you’re interested in applying, the first step is setting up a time to discuss your needs with Program Director Katie Berkedal. She will help make sure you’re applying to the most appropriate grant program and can offer tips for success.
The financial section of this application form is more complicated than their other grant forms. With that in mind, Finance Director Erin Belby is available to help you as needed. Please email her with any questions you have.
