As part of the grant application requirements, applicants that did not submit a grant application for 2019 must attend the informational meeting to be held on October 3rd at 5:30 pm at the Enhance Hamilton County Foundation offices at 501 Bank Street. At least one representative must attend the informational meeting. If an organization submitted a grant last year, they will not be required to attend in order to submit a grant request.
The meeting will provide information on the grant process to new applicants and outline the changes implemented in the 2019 grant cycle. In addition, the meeting will provide a forum for potential applicants to ask questions to assist them with completion of their applications.
Grant applications will be available online starting October 18, 2019. Completed applications will be accepted up until 5 pm on December 31, 2019, to be eligible for review. Monies will be awarded in March 2020.
“The purpose of the Enhance Hamilton County grant program is to provide philanthropic support for projects that address needs throughout Hamilton County as well as those projects that are considered community betterment,” said Darcy Swon, Enhance Hamilton County Foundation Development Director.
Swon reminds potential applicants if they are not a 501c3, a civic organization or a governmental entity, they will need to partner with one to be eligible to receive grant funds.
Since the Foundation was established in 2005, over $1.25 million has been awarded to assist organizations with completion of worthwhile projects in the following areas: Arts & Culture, Community Betterment, Education, Health & Human Services, Recreation & Environment and Youth Development.
Enhance Hamilton County Foundation is a non-profit organization that serves as a liaison and resource for donor-driven charitable giving and community needs.
