The Bay Village Foundation announces funding available for community projects
Now that the holidays are behind us and all of the gifts have been given and returned, The Bay Village Foundation and its trustees want to remind organizations that we are now receiving applications for our 2019 Community Grant Program. Grants of up to $5,000 can be awarded.
We encourage organizations to begin gathering information for the 2019 program as the deadline for acceptance of applications is Feb. 28. To qualify, program projects must be received by the deadline. Unfortunately, in past years, program applications were received after this deadline and could not be considered. Please be mindful of this requirement.
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 of Bay Village. 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, thebayvillagefoundation.org, 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 the grant program can be directed to the Foundation 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. Although mail is preferred, applicants can also email to Tadychward1@yahoo.com.
Grant recipients will be announced and awards presented at the Bay Village Foundation’s Memorial Day Celebration in Cahoon Memorial Park on May 27.
