Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $15,000 to Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to support education initiatives that benefit underprivileged students of all ages. Interested applicants must submit a letter of inquiry prior to submitting a full proposal. Programs to be funded will be located primarily in the Greater Cincinnati region (Hamilton, Butler, Clermont and Warren counties in Ohio; Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties in Kentucky; and Dearborn County in Indiana). Grant requests from other regions will be considered on a limited and selective basis.

The Foundation seeks to improve opportunities and outcomes primarily for underprivileged students by funding educational scholarships, programs and research with a particular emphasis on seeding and supporting new programs.

The Foundation's primary initiative is to help launch innovative educational programs for primary, secondary and adult education. The Foundation also emphasizes funding programs for underprivileged children, youth, adults and families. The ultimate goal is to empower citizens affected by the grant to shape their own future in the community.

The Foundation has a preference for funding smaller, community-based organizations. Programs that project sustainability after two years of funding by the Foundation and programs that have additional matching fund opportunity will receive higher priorities. 

Funding may be provided for capital items and operating expenses.
