GIVE 365 to address Children’s Health and Wellness

December 27, 2022

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 “Children’s Health and Wellness”.

Now in its seventh 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 2023 grant will fund programs or projects that address issues affecting the health and wellness of children throughout Wayne County. While it is up to the nonprofit organizations to present programs, examples include a wide-array of issues affecting our young people: mental health, food insecurity, filling pandemic related educational gaps, even supporting those aging out of the foster care system.

All grant applications should respond to this theme. Grant application must be completed online at 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 over 100 current members, comprised of individuals, couples, and families, GIVE 365 will grant approximately $20,000 this year, with additional funds set aside in a permanently endowed fund for future growth.
