The Centerville-Washington Foundation is accepting grant requests for its 2018 fall grant application cycle. All potential applicants must submit a Grant Request Form (GRF) before consideration of a fall grant application. The GRF deadline for this grant cycle is September 1. GRF forms may be found on the Foundation's website HERE or at Centerville City Hall, 100 Spring Valley Pike. GRF forms are also available by writing to Centerville-Washington Foundation, P.O. Box 41125, Centerville, OH 45441. Grants may be used to launch new projects or to generate matching funds for projects already underway. The Foundation funds projects in the areas of arts and humanities, civic affairs, environment, education, health or social services. In prior years, Foundation grants have ranged between $500 and $2,500 and we would anticipate most fall grant awards to be within that range. Projects can be funded for three consecutive years. In addition, this year the Foundation is hoping to make a Community Impact Grant of up to $10,000.
Over the years, the Foundation has supported many projects in the City and Township. Among them are support for the social programs including Food for the Hungry, programs sponsored by the Centerville-Washington Park District and Washington-Centerville Public Library, materials for Centerville City Schools programs, and needs of the local police and fire departments.
