The Centerville-Washington Foundation, founded in 1998, is accepting grant requests for its 2023 Community Support grant application cycle. All potential applicants must submit a Grant Request Form (GRF) no later than March 1 before consideration for these grants. The fillable application may be found on the Foundation’s website at centervillewashingtonfoundation.com/community-support-grant/. A GRF is 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. In addition, for organizations focused on efforts in the area of diversity, equity, and inclusion a $5,000 grant has been announced with an application deadline of June 15, 2023.
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 grant awards to be within that range. Projects can be funded for three consecutive years.
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.
The Centerville-Washington Foundation exists to be a community partner for corporate and individual charitable giving, functioning in the formation and preservation of charitable donations, providing services to donors and non-profit organizations, and serving as a source of funds for community groups. Centerville-Washington Foundation is a component fund of The Dayton Foundation.
