Grants to Ohio and Michigan nonprofit organizations in eligible regions for projects that enhance the quality of life for local residents. Focus areas include social services, neighborhood and urban affairs, physical and mental health, the arts, education, and natural resources. Eligible programs are those that benefit residents in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan with a particular emphasis on the greater Toledo area.

The Andersons Fund Supporting Organization (the Fund) has been created to enrich the quality of life for individuals and families in the region.

Priority consideration will be given to:

• Requests related to capital projects. The Fund will generally look most favorably on those requests that involve additional funders and do not attempt to rely on the Fund to support the project in its entirety.

When considering capital requests, the Fund’s Board is not just interested in the physical facilities or the specific piece of equipment. Simply stated, buildings house programs and equipment can help advance a mission. Therefore, even though the Fund’s priority is capital projects, the Board will take a look at the programs provided by the requesting organization, its financial stability and other key operational issues.
