Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to Michigan and Ohio nonprofit organizations for programs for children and youth in eligible locations. Funding is intended for programs that promote wellness, fitness, and healthy living among children in grades K-12. Projects must benefit residents of northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.

Toledo Walleye Hockey Club’s Walleye Wishing Well Fund of the Greater Toledo Community Foundation requests proposals from nonprofit organizations seeking to provide programming that promotes the overall fitness and wellness of children enrolled in kindergarten through twelfth grade. Funds must be used to facilitate participation in programming that takes place during cold weather months. Activities should encourage healthy lifestyles, exercise, sports, and/or physical fitness education and can occur indoors or outdoors. A preference will be placed on programs incorporating an educational component that enables participants to learn skills associated with healthy living. 

Funds may be used to cover enrollment fees, transportation, equipment, uniform costs, and program materials. Funds may also be requested for costs associated with maintaining or rehabilitating sporting venues like baseball diamonds, football fields, or other similar sites. Funding priority will be given to projects that have not previously received funding support from the Walleye Wishing Well Fund.
