Nonprofit Resources

Through our donors and competitive grants programs The Van Wert County Foundation provides funding to nonprofits.  Annually, The Foundation provides $4-$5 million in funding to area nonprofits.  While grant-making is important, there are many other ways we assist nonprofits.

Van Wert County & the surrounding area is fortunate to have a strong and vibrant nonprofit community.  Supporting nonprofits and providing them with the resources they need to fulfill their missions is one of the important ways we work across our area.
