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 “Supporting Wayne County’s Vulnerable Youth”.
Nonprofit organizations are invited to request funding for programs or projects that address issues affecting childhood hunger, and/or educational disparities resulting from a range of socio-economic factors. Grant applications must be completed online at www.WayneCountyCommunityFoundation.org and submitted 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.
Now in its fifth 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 members actively participate in the grant process.
With over 90 current memberships, comprised of individuals, couples, and families, GIVE 365 will grant approximately $17,500 this year, with additional funds set aside in a permanently endowed fund for future growth.
