Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 to Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio nonprofit organizations in the Greater Cincinnati area for new and innovative educational programs and to assist underserved communities. A letter of inquiry is required prior to applying.

Programs to be funded will be located primarily in the Greater Cincinnati region (Hamilton, Butler, Clermont and Warren counties in Ohio; Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties in Kentucky; and Dearborn County in Indiana). Grant requests from other regions will be considered on a limited and selective basis.

The Foundation’s primary initiative is to support the launch of new and innovative educational programs for primary, secondary, and adult education. Another emphasis is focused on funding programs for underprivileged children, youth, adults, and families, which will empower them to become productive and contributing citizens.

Programs that project sustainability after two years of funding by the Foundation and programs that have additional matching fund opportunities will receive higher priorities.
