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, again, remind organizations that the deadline for acceptance of applications for its’ 2018 Community Grant Program is February 28, 2018. Grants available can be awarded up to $5000. To qualify, projects and programs must be responsive to community needs and applications must be received by February 28, 2018.
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 the City of Bay Village. Additionally, tax exempt 501(c)3 organizations or programs that have an IRS tax exempt fiscal agent will only qualify for grant awards.
Organizations interested in applying can go to the Foundation’s website www.thebayvillagefoundation.org to obtain an application and instructions. Additional required documentation includes such items as a copy of the organization’s mission statement, Internal Revenue Service tax-determination letter, a list of current board members and key personnel, recent financial statements and the annual operating budget.
