Grants to Ohio nonprofit organizations and government agencies for law-related activities that enhance public understanding of law and support the pursuit of justice. Applicants must schedule an appointment with program staff prior to applying. The following advisory guidelines have been set forth to aid potential applicants.
-Single project – The project should be clearly defined. Projects that are innovative or address unmet needs will be favored. Single projects may include funding for legal services where such funding would be ancillary to a project that is new, innovative and capable of future replication without the use of OSBF funding.
-Need – The applicant must demonstrate a need. Projects that duplicate similar services or programs already provided in an area may be disfavored. If there is a need for additional services of this nature, the applicant should demonstrate that they have developed means of coordinating with existing services.
-Geographic focus – The Foundation strives to fund projects in the state of Ohio with a focus placed on geographic diversity.
-Replication/Dissemination plan - Applications must include a plan to disseminate or replicate the product produced with the Foundation's grant funds.
-Evaluation - Applicants should incorporate a means for evaluating the project and must complete the Foundation’s evaluation.
-Resulting products – Copies of data, written materials, audiovisual materials or other products developed as a result of the Foundation's grant must be provided.
The Ohio State Bar Foundation strives to identify and fund projects that most effectively further its mission of promoting the pursuit of justice and public understanding of the rule of law.
