HUBER HEIGHTS — The Huber Heights Foundation — a community foundation that began in 2004 and reorganized in 2013 — invites grant requests from non-profit organizations or governmental entities in the City of Huber Heights for review during August to September 15.

Grant requests will be reviewed on Sept.16. The deadline for submitting grant applications is Sept. 15. Grants may be used to launch new projects or to generate funds for on-going projects.

The Foundation funds projects in the areas of arts and humanities, civic affairs, the environment, education, health or social services. The amount of the grant is $500.

The Huber Heights Foundation generally makes grants to support start up or new projects in the areas of the arts and humanities, education and youth, conservation and the environment, health and social services and citizenship. These projects or programs are ones that are not currently being addressed by existing organizations, or they are special efforts by existing organizations to undertake unique activities or projects. All grant applications are reviewed thoroughly by the Huber Heights Foundation Grants Committee composed of Board of Trustees and community volunteers.

Forms for grant requests are available on the Foundation’s website huberheightsfoundation.org — or at Huber Heights City Hall. Forms are also available by contacting Ronnie Redd at 937-233-3728, email ronnie@ronnieredd.net or Janice McLefresh at 937-255-9972 or email jmclefresh@daytonfoundation.org
