Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $2,000 to local Ohio individuals and organizations proposing innovative academic programs, services, and/or capital improvement projects that will benefit students in the City of Milford public schools. Grants will be awarded to support traditional academic subjects, the arts, music, technology, athletics, emergency funds, special education, and other high-impact projects.

Consideration will therefore be given to proposals that:
- Impact a large number of students.
- Have the potential to make a significant impact or change.
- Have matching funds if possible.
- Demonstrate the lack of other available supporting funding.
- Will be used for projects that provide long term value.
- Enhance and augment, but not duplicate, the standard school curriculum.
- Demonstrate partnerships between teachers, schools, and academic disciplines.

The above list of factors is not meant to be an all-inclusive list of all factors that the Foundation will consider. Rather, this list is a guideline for applicants as they consider making an application for a grant.
