Bay Village Foundation announces project funding available

As we begin the back half of winter’s cold, wind and snow, and our thoughts of spring brighten the horizon, the trustees of the Bay Village Foundation want to remind organizations that the deadline for applications for its 2018 Community Grant Program is Feb. 28.

Grants available can be awarded up to $5,000. To qualify, projects and programs must be responsive to community needs and applications must be received by the Feb. 28 deadline.

The Bay Village Foundation is interested in and works to support capital projects and programs that truly improve the quality of community life in our city. An eligible organization must be located in or provide services to residents within Bay Village. Additionally, only tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations or programs that have an IRS tax-exempt fiscal agent will qualify for grant awards.

Organizations interested in applying can go to the Foundation’s website to obtain an application and instructions. Additional required documentation includes a copy of the organization’s mission statement, IRS tax-determination letter, a list of current board members and key personnel, recent financial statements and the annual operating budget.

Questions concerning the Bay Village Foundation or the application for grant programs can be directed to the Foundation President, Al Paulus, 440-899-8163, or its grant chairman, Dave Tadych, 440-835-1815. Completed applications and their necessary attachments can be mailed to: David Tadych, Grant Chairman, The Bay Village Foundation, P.O. Box 40122, Bay Village, OH 44140. Applicants can also email
