January 29, 2018

GIVE 365 Wayne County, the dollar-a-day philanthropy initiative of the Wayne County Community Foundation, is accepting grant applications from area nonprofits. The theme for this year’s grant cycle, as voted on by the GIVE 365 membership, is "Addressing Children’s Health and Development in Wayne County".

In its second year, GIVE 365 unites and informs emerging philanthropists to make a collective impact on Wayne County, Ohio. Members donate $365 a year, pool their money with others, and vote on both an annual grant making theme and grant recipients. GIVE 365 gives members the chance to actively participate in the grant process.

The 2018 grant will fund programs or projects that address the health or development of school-aged children (K-12) in Wayne County, Ohio. All grant applications should respond to this theme. Grant applications must be completed online at www.WayneCountyCommunityFoundation.org by noon on March 1st. The membership of GIVE 365 will review all applications and make their recommendation to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees. Organizations may be asked to meet with the membership of GIVE 365 to respond to questions about their proposals.

With 55 current members, comprised of individuals, couples, and families, GIVE 365 will grant approximately $10,000 this year, with additional funds set aside in a permanently endowed fund for future growth.
