  • Primarily make grants to non-profit organizations located in Northeast Ohio
  • In order to benefit as much of Northeast Ohio as possible, we will typically grant just two years in a row to the same organization
  • Only make grants to organizations who have verifiable 501(c)(3) designation from the IRS
  • Please take a look at our FAQ’s for more information
