WINGS Grant Policy

WINGS supports endeavors that encourage women and youth of all cultures, nationalities, races, sexual orientation and abilities to reach their full potential. WINGS grants contribute to the health, safety, education, socialization, artistic growth and economic stability of the community. WINGS strives to increase access to opportunity through grants to both new and existing projects, taking into consideration financial need, impact and capacity building.  WINGS encourages innovative initiatives.

WINGS gives grants to qualified non-profit organizations, public schools and government organizations for the purpose of general community support.  Projects funded must benefit residents of the Northfield School District. Both the applicant organization and the project funded must comply with current legal requirements forbidding discrimination as to age, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability or national origin. Grants will not be awarded for any of the following purposes: endowment campaigns, debt reduction, lobbying or sectarian purposes/programs. In addition, they typically will not be awarded for capital development/improvement projects.
