Do you have a new idea that you want to make happen?  Maybe we can help.  A grant from Willary Foundation could launch your idea or project.

Willary is a small family foundation in northeastern Pennsylvania that makes grants to organizations and individuals in Lackawanna and Luzerne counties.  We are partial to innovative ideas and concepts and we like creativity.

Please take a look at our mission statement and grant history.  They will give you a better idea of what kind of grants we like to make. 

We're serious about our work.  But if we, in the course of grant making, can make you smile or you can make us smile, so much the better.

How can we help you?
