Do you have a project idea to improve Hudson?

The Hudson Community Foundation is offering $10,000 in grants to spark the next big idea to improve the city of Hudson.

"The mission of the Hudson Community Foundation is to advance our great city and we think the best way to do this is to hear from residents themselves about which improvements are most important to them and how these improvements can be made," said Amy Schneider,

President of the Hudson Community Foundation. "This is a unique opportunity for residents to pitch their ideas for direct grant funding consideration, through a program called Spark."

The Foundation has supported projects such as the new Hudson Dog Park and the Hudson Bee Project through Spark grants. In its third year, Spark grants were created to empower residents to ignite change in their area.

Entries will be accepted until Sept. 15, 2018 and finalists will be notified by Sept. 30, 2018. The three selected projects will present their ideas to the community on Oct.23, 2018 at the Hudson Community Foundation meeting and SPARK Event, where the grant recipients will be determined.

Please send your project proposal to the following address: Project Spark, Hudson Community Foundation c/o St. Croix Valley Foundation, 516 Second St., Suite 214A, Hudson, WI 54016. For more details on Spark grants and project proposal guidelines, visit
