The Fund for Huron County is accepting applications for a spring round of grants. Applications are due by March 1. The fund makes grants to Huron County non-profit agencies.
Two rounds of grants will be made this year, one in March for grants and the second in November for mini-grants ($250 and under). The Fund for Huron County makes grants from a permanent endowment fund created by many donors. Contributions may be made currently, or over time, with money or appreciated assets, such as stocks and bonds. Donors of $10,000 or more may establish a named fund in their own name or honoring or memorializing someone else. It is possible to create donor advised funds in which the donor takes an active role in awarding grants.
Grant guidelines and applications may be obtained by writing to P.O. Box 541, Norwalk, Ohio 44857-0541 or atwww.peoplewhocare.org under Fund for Huron County. Huron County non-profit agencies with 501c(3) status under the Internal Revenue Code are eligible to submit applications for grants. Applications for grants in a wide range of charitable interests will be considered, including the arts, culture, civic affairs, education, health, economic development and social services.
