We support nonprofits in the greater Alliance area by granting funding through our formal grant application and approval processes. Applications are reviewed and approved three times per year – at our February, June, and October Board Meetings – and grantees must prove appropriate use of funds within a specified period after grants have been awarded.
Considerations of the Board of Trustees when reviewing a grant application include but are not limited to – whether there is a community need for the project, whether the nonprofit has the ability to raise funds, and whether the project to be funded is sustainable.
If you would like for your organization to be considered for grant funding, please fill out our application below. If you have any questions, please contact our Executive Director, Doug Schwarz, at 330-823-8560.
The Greater Alliance Foundation extends our grant process to tax-exempt organizations in good standing with the Internal Revenue Service. The Foundation will not consider requests for endowments, general fundraising, deficit financing, loans, or grants to individuals. Considering our local focus, we do not ordinarily consider projects that are not primarily of interest to the greater Alliance community. The Foundation does not make grants for research projects or give support to conferences, seminars, media events, or workshops unless they are an integral part of a broader program.
