This year’s grant making focus for the Wayne County Community Foundation’s GIVE 365 program was “Addressing the Needs of the Homeless Population in Wayne County". In May, the Wayne County Community Foundation (WCCF) Board of Trustees approved 365 members’ grant recommendation totaling $19,000 to The Salvation Army for their Day Time Drop In Center.
The grant process is the heart of the GIVE 365 program. Members submit ideas for an annual grant making theme; the ideas are posted online and decided by a majority vote of the membership. The grant application process is open to any nonprofit in Wayne County with a program or project that addresses the annual focus, with a grant application deadline of March 1.
A new cycle of GIVE 365 membership begins on July 1. Membership is open to anyone who wants to make Wayne County a better place by combining their charitable contributions with others’ to support nonprofit organizations. Members pay only a $1 a day – or $365 a year. Their gifts, pooled with those of other donors, can make a greater impact in Wayne County. To learn how you can become a member, call the Foundation at 330-262-3877 or visit www.waynecountycommunityfoundation.org.
Since 1978, the Wayne County Community Foundation has been working to strengthen the community we all share. It is a nonprofit charitable community organization. Since inception, WCCF has awarded over $82 million in grants and scholarships back into the community.
