Wayne County Community Foundation’s GIVE 365 Program Awards Grants
June 26, 2024

This year’s grant making focus for the Wayne County Community Foundation’s GIVE 365 program was "Supporting Wayne County’s Most Vulnerable Citizens". In May, the Wayne County Community Foundation (WCCF) Board of Trustees approved GIVE 365 members’ grant recommendations totaling $20,500 to four nonprofit organizations:

$6,000 to OHuddle for OHuddle Resource Development and Safety Planning Software to upgrade safety software which houses youth and mentor information.

$9,500 to Trinity United Church of Christ for the Breakfast Program Kitchen Initiative, for upgrades including the purchase of an electric convection oven for the kitchen.

$3,500 to VANTAGE Aging for Serving More Than a Meal to provide support to Meals on Wheels of Northeast Ohio.

$1,500 to Wayne County Volunteer Guardianship Association for Guardian Training and CLE for needed volunteer guardians for Wayne County’s most vulnerable.

 The grant process is the heart of the GIVE 365 program. Since it was established in 2016, over $141,500 has been awarded in grants. 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 $112.8 million in grants and scholarships.
