Investing Locally
Annual funding is awarded to those individuals and/or groups organized exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary, religious and educational purposes. Over $550,000 has been handed out since 1988 to the Mt. Horeb Area.

​Funding requests may be made by individuals or groups that are residents of, or serving the vicinity of the Village of Mt. Horeb, requiring financial support for a project or service that advances and enriches the common welfare of the community or a group within.
The MHCF encourages grant requests for projects or programs that:  

  •   are likely to have a substantial impact on the quality of life of people in the community;
  •   propose practical ways to address community issues and problems;
  •   leverage other sources of support (i.e., funds or volunteers);
  •   stimulate others to participate in addressing community problems;
  •   assist non-profit organizations to maximize effective management;
  •   are sustainable over time.

The Foundation has limited resources, so there are restrictions on the scope of the activities the Foundation is able to support. In general, the Foundation does NOT grant funds for:

  •   unrestricted general operating expenses; 
  •   endowment funds; 
  •   umbrella funding organizations that intend to distribute funds at their own discretion; 
  •   political lobbying or legislative activities; 
  •   individuals.
