Grant Applications for 2018 Due January 15

The Granville Community Foundation is currently accepting grant applications for the 2018 calendar year. Applications are due January 15, 2018.

Each year, the Granville Community Foundation provides grants to local non-profit organizations. These grant awards are funded through an endowment built through legacy bequests and an annual fund campaign supported generously by Granville residents.

Decisions about the Foundation’s grant program rest in the hands of its Board of Directors, who represent the community at large and its principal governmental and educational institutions. Decisions are guided by an evolving assessment of community needs. Presently, priority is being given to grant applicants seeking support for projects or programs which:

  • Make a clear difference in the quality of life for Granville residents

  • Enrich cultural opportunities

  • Preserve the community’s history

  • Provide residents targeted social support

  • Serve the elderly and disadvantaged

  • Enhance the attractiveness of public spaces

  • Propose innovative and creative solutions to difficult community challenges

  • Broaden the life experiences of community youth

Foundation grants, which have totaled $300,000 in the last three years alone, touch every aspect of the Granville community. In 2017, grants to 15 Granville non-profits helped fund an art education program for third-graders, build new exhibits for the Granville Historical Society Museum, launch development of a comprehensive community plan for the arts, purchase fireworks for July Fourth festivities, roll out an art program for seniors, and much more.
