Grant Process

The Elm Grove Junior Guild is a community of women committed to the education, wellness and protection of women and children within and beyond our community. Our commitment takes the form of service, awareness and financial support.

Funds raised through our annual auction, The Tree of Giving Gala, are granted not only women and children organizations but also to our own community, the Village of Elm Grove. Outside of the Village of Elm Grove, we specifically look to support 501(c)(3) nonprofits that serve in Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties. We are particularly interested in supporting the protection, education and wellness of women and children non-profit organizations.
