    Application and more information

    ·        The Foundation favors grants designated for capital and program needs

    ·        The Foundation is partial to providing grants directly to the end user organizations rather than conduit organizations (e.g. The United Way of Greater Cincinnati, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, etc.), but allows the ability to support those conduit organizations under extraordinary circumstances.

    The Foundation uses CyberGrants, an on-line grants management system, to receive and consider applications.

    If approved, distribution will be made in December.
