Community Engagement

Temporary Community Initiatives Grants

We're your partners in purpose.

Through the use of our Community Engagement Fund, your collective action group can take advantage of benefits which are only available through a nonprofit partner like the South Madison Community Foundation.

The Community Engagement Fund supports designated temporary community initiatives endorsed by the Foundation.

Through the use of Foundation back-office services and commitment to expenditure responsibility, community projects like the Lapel Gazebo Project, Pendleton Log Cabin Project, and ParkFest have brought residents together to make their mark on community. Our range of existing services complement volunteer efforts, extending the power of partnership.

Some startup efforts, like Pendleton Artist’s Society and Main Street Pendleton, used the Foundation’s structural framework while working to achieve their own nonprofit status. 

Our “Community Engagement Fund” can be your group’s most effective tool in achieving your goals. If your great idea for community betterment could benefit from partnership with the South Madison Community Foundation, take a look at our sample partnership agreement, and contact us to begin the conversation.
