- The applicant organization must adhere to a mission that is religious, educational, scientific, literary, or charitable in nature

Pre-Application Information:

The Foundation makes Mini-Grants and Standard Grants twice each year. Deadlines for grant applications are as follows:

Update: *The 2020 mini grant deadline has been extended! Both mini and standard grant applications are now due by September 30.*

- Mini-Grants: March 15 and September 15 each year
- Standard Grants: March 31 and September 30 each year

If the deadline falls on Saturday or Sunday, grants must be submitted by the last business day prior to the above dates

All applications must be presented using The Piqua Community Foundation’s grant application forms. Forms are available from The Foundation upon request. Completed applications must be delivered personally or by mail, and are not accepted by email or fax.

Special grant forms are available for school-related grants – those being sought by teachers, coaches, club advisers or principals. The school mini-grant and school standard grant forms must be used for programs or projects operated in a school setting rather than the more generic forms used by other charitable organizations. Any applicant who questions which form to request should discuss the matter with the Foundation Executive Director.

The Foundation does not make grants to the same organization, project or program in consecutive years.
