The Dayton Foundation
Grants for up to $25,000 to improve the quality of life in Ohio. The mission of the Foundation is to encourage charitable giving to benefit the greater Dayton area communities and neighborhoods. The purpose of the available funding is to support a wide range of non-profit organizations delivering services that benefit the people in Ohio. Generally grants are awarded to help launch new projects not addressed by existing organizations or to support special efforts of already-established not-for-profit organizations in the Greater Dayton Region.
The Foundation gives priority to projects that meet one or more of the following criteria:
• provide for more efficient use of community resources, promote coordination, cooperation and sharing among organizations and reduce the duplication of services in our community;
• test or demonstrate new approaches and techniques for solving important community problems;
• promote volunteer participation and citizen involvement in community affairs; and
• strengthen not-for-profit agencies and institutions by reducing operating costs, increasing public financial support and/or improving internal management.
