Application for WALC project Grant

Each year WALC has adequate funds in the treasury, we consider grants to individuals or organizations to fund projects consistent with the purposes of WALC. WALC's statement of purpose can be found on the website, but especially relevant tenets are: • To support and encourage the development of high standards of effective and ethical practice in the field of infant feeding among lactation consultants and other health care workers. • To create universal awareness of the importance of human milk and breastfeeding and the hazards of artificial feeding. • To cooperate with other Wisconsin organizations that have aims and objectives (in whole or in part) similar to those of WALC. The WALC board will approve the applications and may elect to fully or partially fund a request. Qualifications and Conditions: 1) Grant applications must be submitted by a current WALC member. The grant applicant does not necessarily have to be a member of the organization seeking the grant. 2) Grant applications are reviewed at our May Board meeting. Applications should be submitted by May 1st to be considered at this meeting. Notification of grants awarded will be made by May 31. Grants MAY be considered at other times if we have sufficient funds. 3) A short report on how the funds were used should be submitted to the WALC president within 30 days of the end of the project or by May 1 of the following year. No reminder will be sent, so mark your calendar. Individuals or organizations who do not meet this requirement are unlikely to be awarded a grant in the future.
