The Foundation considers applications for grant amounts of $1,000 and higher. The size of the request should be no more than 10% of the total project’s/program’s budget.
Only organizations that are tax-exempt under the IRS Code Section 501(c)(3) are eligible for grant funding. The highest priority is given to eligible organizations who serve children in the Greater Dayton area. Organizations who fall outside this geographic scope are considered only under special circumstances.
Requests are not considered for:
- Endowment funds
- Mass funding appeals
- Advertising for fundraising events tickets
- Grants or loans to individuals
- Political campaigns or activities
- Organizations outside the United States
The Foundation will accept one application per year (i.e. four quarters following the date of the last application) from any qualifying organization. In addition, all grant requirements, including a final report, must be completed before consideration of further funding.
Prior to submitting a full grant application, the Foundation recommends that organizations who have never received funding, or past grantees who are requesting funds for a new project, should submit a Grant Interest Form through the website.
Grant Interest Forms will be reviewed on a rolling basis and the staff will indicate whether your program is within the mission and funding priorities of the Foundation. If invited, a link to the full application will be provided to you.
The Foundation requires applicants to submit applications online. You will be asked to create an account in order to complete the online application.
All applicants will be notified by e-mail when their applications are received. The entire grant process can take up to 100 days from the application deadline each quarter.
