Requesting a Grant From The William E. Wockner Foundation

Though the Foundation’s management is active in its existing support of organizations involved in the areas of interest to Bill Wockner, we stand on the lookout for organizations so involved that have yet to be brought to our attention.

Proposer's Characteristics

  • A proposer must qualify as a 501(c)(3) Public Charity
  • A proposal must relate to an activity involved in one or more of Bill Wockner’s six specific focus areas:
    • Family Shelter and Support
    • The Needs of Youth
    • Seniors and Vulnerable Adults
    • Medical Research and Care
    • The Military and First Responders
    • The Environment and Conservation
  • Though being located in the Pacific Northwest is not essential, organizations having an impact in this geographic area will be given preference

Proposal Contents

There are certain features that we would like to see in a proposal: The proposing organization’s mission, its area or areas of operation, its leadership and staffing, its accomplishments, and its sources of revenue and/or funding.

Our experience has been that some proposals are for specific undertakings whether in terms of an organization’s activities or its infrastructure. Other proposals are simply for funding to contribute to the organization’s general overhead. Some proposals involve a combination of these. All are worthy of consideration.

In some instances before a grant is made, we will need to be provided with the organization’s financial statements for a reasonable period of time. A proposal should set forth the specific dollar amount that is being requested.
