Eligible projects and services must benefit the community within the City of Wilsonville.

Types of Projects to be Considered

These are not exclusive categories, but are to be used by applicants and by the Review Committee as guidelines for the types of activities grant funds are intended for. The Review Committee will consider the uniqueness and the overall quality of each project.

  • Projects, events, or services to further educational or artistic opportunities in the City of Wilsonville.
  • Projects, events, or services to encourage and foster diversity in the Wilsonville community.
  • Projects, events, or services that provide entertainment, personal growth, and strengthened community.
  • Services or projects to encourage and foster advances in civic engagement or community leadership among Wilsonville’s diverse community members.
  • Services, projects, or events to involve Wilsonville’s youth or elderly population in community activities.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Applicant Criteria:
1. Applicant must be an authorized official of a Wilsonville community organization, project, or charitable or nonprofit organization. Organizations must have been in operation for at least twelve months prior to application, unless the Review Committee finds the organization to have a commensurate level of experience with project leadership and funds management.
2. Funds must be used for a specific project or a specific element of a project which is clearly identified in the application and takes place within the City of Wilsonville.
3. An organization will only be eligible for a grant if any previously awarded grant projects complied with grant procedures, including filing a final financial statement and project evaluation.
