Foundation / Corporation
Grants to Ohio nonprofit organizations in Lake, Geauga, and Cuyahoga counties for projects that address significant community issues in Geauga and Lake Counties. Eligible projects will align with one of the Foundation's priority areas, including: housing and neighborhoods, jobs and economy, inclusion, health, environment, and education and youth development.
Strong submissions will introduce a collaborative mission that addresses at least one of the priorities developed during the community listening sessions, identifies key public or private organizations actively involved with collaboration, and outlines a coordinated approach that moves the needle in the identified priority area(s). While only non-profit organizations are eligible to apply for this grant opportunity, successful collaborations will likely include elements of strong public-private partnership.
The Lake-Geauga Fund of the Cleveland Foundation encourages innovative, yet practical, research-based project proposals. Examples of projects that have been funded include; United Way Services of Geauga County – a collaborative project addressing the rising number of individuals in Geauga County re-entering the community from jail – and Lake County Educational Services Center – a collaborative project that targets K-12 students in both Lake and Geauga counties, forms a partnership with the manufacturing community, and has a goal of providing students the exposure, training, and life skills critical to being successful in a manufacturing environment.
