The Van Wert County Foundation serves as a philanthropic vehicle for individuals, corporations, and organizations by administering grants to charitable organizations. Together we create a well-resourced and thriving quality of life for our community.

“This competitive grant cycle is the best opportunity for local nonprofits to acquire 2021 funding for projects and programs, as our next cycle is in December, and those awards will be made in 2022.”, states Seth Baker, VWCF CEO. 

This grant cycle culminates one year since the release of the updated application process and program. The Online Grants Manager compiles information and support materials for The Van Wert County Foundation’s software system for managing online applications and grants. This process allows grantees an easy way to see the status of a grant, check due dates, and submit electronic grant reports (if required). 

“We recommend that applicants continue to carefully read the instructions and reference materials found on our website before updating, registering, and starting their application. If an applicant encounters issues or has questions, we ask that they email” shares Amanda Miller, VWCF Marketing + Relations.

Grant applications and additional information can be found here.

Grant applications and all requested materials must be submitted by midnight on Saturday, May 1, 2021, to be considered eligible for potential funding in the current grant cycle.
