Whidbey Community Foundation’s second annual grant cycle is now open, offering funding to nonprofits on Whidbey Island.

Any organization that operates with a charitable status or for a charitable purpose on Whidbey Island is eligible to apply for a grant.

The organization does not need to have a physical presence on Whidbey as long as services are provided on island.

Applicants may apply for grants up to $5,000 within each of the three open categories: Animal welfare, environment and human services.

The online applications, available on WCF’s website, are due on Aug. 31. Grant awards are expected to be made before the end of the year.

Last year, Whidbey Community Foundation distributed grants to 13 nonprofits serving Whidbey Island.

• For information, call the foundation at 360-660-5041.
