In 2008, the New Ulm Area Foundation made its first large grant award to help create a  quality soccer facility serving over 300 New Ulm area youth and hosting over 150 games a year.

Martin Luther College in association with the

 New Ulm Area Soccer Association,

Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and

V.F.W. Post 1648

$50,000

This size of donation made an impact on a large number of people in our community, raised the visibility of the Foundation’s donor’s generosity and gave the NUAF the opportunity to partner with other organizations in our community.

In 2012 he Advisory Board of the New Ulm Area Foundation put out a Request for Proposal for all local non-profits and qualifying agencies to submit ideas for a large project to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Foundation.  Qualifying organizations submitted proposals which were reviewed by the Grants Committee and three of the projects were asked to complete applications and make a presentation to the Committee about the project.  After reviewing the proposals, applications and presentations, the committee members were so impressed they decided to make grants to all three of the finalist applicants!  So here they are……
