Grants Overview & Application Form

Giving money back is what Marshfield Area Community Foundation, Inc. is all about!

Since our founding in 1993, all of our funds generate charitable donations that go back into the Marshfield area. In 2021, we gave back over $2.5  million to our community through a variety of grants to support emerging needs and interests of the Marshfield Area.

Community Grants are also supported by our Community Grants Fund,  Women’s Giving Circle Fund, Senior Citizen’s Endowment Fund, The Marshfield Area Community Foundation Forever Fund, and several other funds, including the Heinzen Family Fund. Community Grants are discretionary grants awarded annually on a competitive basis. Community Grants are our best means of responding to new or changing charitable needs in our community.
