The Healthy Living Grants Program
Each year the Culpeper Wellness Foundation provides Healthy Living Grants to support health and wellness related programs and activities in the Foundation’s service area of Culpeper, Madison and Orange counties. Funding decisions on providing the grants to nonprofits in these counties are made by a volunteer grants advisory committee. The application period typically occurs in March and April, and the review process concludes in early May.
Grant recipients must be organizations recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or be a school, municipality or other subdivision of government. Organizations that do not have public charity status may apply for grants if a public charity acts as a fiscal sponsor.

If your organization has submitted an application, please note that volunteer members of the Foundation’s Community Grants Advisory Board will review the applications and determine which requests are funded. Applicants will be notified of the status of their application by the end of May 2022.
