Grants to Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan nonprofit organizations to enhance the quality of life for local families and individuals, with an emphasis on communities in the greater Toledo area. Funding is available for a broad range of programs in areas such as social services, education, neighborhood and urban affairs, physical and mental health, the arts, and natural resources.

TCF has a particular interest in providing seed money for new programs designed to meet emerging community needs or to expand existing successful programs. Emphasis is placed on programs that will: (a) Create safe, positive living environments; (b) Enable families to develop the skills/resources needed to support and nurture each member; and (c) Foster the development of responsible young people who are capable of achieving their fullest potential.

Grant funds should only be requested to support direct programmatic expenses.
