Grants to Ohio nonprofit organizations for programs and projects that enhance the quality of life for residents of the Montpelier and Williams County Area. Generally, grants are intended to help launch new projects, support established organizations, and generate matching funds.
The Foundation prefers funding for:
- Start-up costs for new programs
- One-time projects or needs
- Capital needs beyond an applicant's capabilities and means
GrantWatch ID#: 176977
Once a grant is received, the Foundation anticipates that the funds shall be expended within twelve months of being awarded. The Foundation board is reluctant to approve grants to any organization for multi-year grant requests. (Please contact the Foundation office before submitting a multi-year grant request). However, exceptions to this may be made at the discretion of the Board.
The Foundation makes grants to tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations operating or proposing to operate programs primarily for the benefit of Williams County residents.
The Foundation will not normally consider grants from unrestricted funds for the following purposes:
- Individuals other than scholarships (separate applications exist for the scholarship program)
- Programs that are strictly religious or sectarian in purpose
- Make-up of operating deficits, post-event, or after-the-fact situations
- Endowment campaigns
- For any propaganda, political or otherwise, attempting to influence legislation or intervene in any political affairs or campaigns
In addition, the Foundation board is reluctant to approve grants to any organization for the purpose of maintaining an on-going operating budget.
The Foundation Board considers grants four times each year – in December, March, June, and September. Completed applications must be received at the Foundation office by 12:00 PM (noon) on:
September 30: for consideration in December
December 31: for consideration in March
March 31: for consideration in June
June 30: for consideration in September
If the deadline date falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline for applications will be the first workday prior to the deadline (e.g. Friday, if the deadline falls on a weekend).
