MASC Youth Grant

Frequently Asked Questions


What is the best way to turn in our grant - mail, in-person, or electronically?

We accept all three forms of applications being submitted as long as the complete application is received by 5:00 PM CST on the deadline date noted.


Do I need to fill out the entire application?

Yes, you should fill out the entire application including the three (3) letters of reference.  If you have questions about the grant please contact a MASC staff member or email


What types of initiatives are acceptable to apply for?

The philosophy of the MASC youth grant is to meet the sporting need of the community and encourage creative ways to get Dane County youth into sports.  It is permissible to apply for items such as scholarships, equipment, transportation and in special cases capital construction.  For questions please contact a MASC staff member or email


What dollar amount should I apply for?

Any dollar amount is accepted.  However, it is recommended that a figure between $1,000 and $8,000, along with a minimum you would accept to advance your initiative.  The philosophy of the committee is to spread funds as widely as possible.


Should I apply if I am a past MASC grant recipient?

Returning applicants are welcomed to apply again whether a grant was received or not.  However, if you have been awarded a grant, are applying for the same initiative and your first grant hasn’t been closed, it is recommended that you first complete the follow-up survey prior to re-applying for the same initiative.  If you have questions please contact a MASC staff member.


Can one organization put in multiple requests in one grant cycle for different initiatives?

Yes, however, it is recommended that the requesting applicant(s) be aligned in the event grant review committees have questions about your respective applications.


Is an organization permitted to apply for the same initiative multiple years?

Yes, however, it is the preference that the prior year be closed out.  It is also the preference that the applicant focuses on compelling reasons to continue applying for the same initiative for more than three years.


Grant applications for the next round of the Grant Cycle will be accepted starting in summer of 2018 - exact date to be determined soon. The grant application will be posted at that time.​
