Grants to Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan nonprofits for programs in the areas of neighborhood and urban affairs, education, mental and physical health, social services, the arts, and natural resources. Priority will be given to applicants in the greater Toledo area and requests related to capital projects.
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.
GrantWatch ID#: 180553
Grant requests are generally funded for one year.
Grants are awarded only to nonprofit, charitable organizations which have been designated as having tax exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service code.
Areas generally not funded include individuals, computer hardware and software, vehicles, conferences, capital, and research.
The Fund considers grant requests once per year. The deadline for proposals is April 15. Proposals must be submitted through the Foundation’s online application process. Proposals must be received by 11:59 p.m. of the application deadline in order to be considered for funding.
Faxed, emailed and mailed proposals will not be accepted.
The Board of Trustees meets approximately 90 days subsequent to each deadline date to make funding decisions. Applicant organizations are notified, in writing, of approval or denial of funding requests within one week after the Board of Trustees takes action. Project expenses incurred by an applicant organization prior to such notification cannot be paid by the Fund.
Prior to submitting a proposal, applicants are encouraged to call the Foundation. The Foundation's program staff is available to answer questions you may have regarding the grant application process.
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.
