Grants to Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan nonprofit organizations for programs and capital projects to improve the quality of life for local residents. Particular emphasis is placed on programs serving the greater Toledo area. Grants are available for organizations with programs in the areas of education, social services, physical and mental health, neighborhood and urban affairs, natural resources, and the arts.
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.
The Fund will generally place a lower priority on the following types of requests:
- Annual, ongoing operating costs
- Sectarian activities of religious organizations
- New, untested programs
- Endowment campaigns
- Information technology related expenses
- Support for schools
