Eligibility to Apply
Non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations, including hospital systems, and government entities in Northeast Ohio will be eligible to apply. Only one grant application per organization is allowed. Organizations may receive no more than one responsive grant per 12-month period. To be eligible for consideration, proposals from hospital systems will need to include matching dollars in project budgets and clearly identify community partner(s) for project/program execution.
The deadline to apply for a responsive grant is September 1. The online application will be available one month prior to the deadline. The Board of Trustees meets annually in November to consider applications and award grants. All applications must be submitted online.
