Ideas to Action Fund: Apply for Money and/or Staff Time

The WiLS "Ideas to Action Fund" application period has been extended through June 14, 2019.  So there's still time — if your project meets their eligibility and requirements, you can apply for up to $5000!  Apply here.

Hint: if your library isn't already a WiLS member, just fill out the short WiLS General Member Agreement to join for free!

(For inspiration and ideas, look at McMillian Memorial Library’s Community STEAM Kits proposal, which was funded in 2018.)

  • WiLS will award up to $5,000 per applicant.
  • Instead of or in addition to funding, you can apply for WiLS staff time to help organize the project or provide expertise in facilitation, survey administration or other project activities.

The Fund aims to provide support for innovative or collaborative projects, to help members reach their goals and have a positive impact on the Wisconsin library ecosystem.
