Exciting changes are coming to MCCF's grantmaking
| Terry Pfleiderer, MCCF Grants Committee chair
Last spring, during the Medina County Community Fund’s grant distribution meetings, many of our committee and board members expressed a desire for more structure around our grant-making process.
Over the past few months, we and our friends at Akron Community Foundation have discussed making some changes that would allow us to move the needle in one specific area by giving a larger, more impactful grant.
This grant will focus on one of three priority areas, which are housing, transportation and health. These three areas were identified by our Grants Committee members as some of the most critical needs in our community.
We realize by doing this that we will have less to give away to all of the other great and worthwhile organizations in Medina County, but this new approach to grantmaking will allow us to really tackle one of our community’s most pressing issues.
In addition to this impact grant, we will also award smaller grants during our upcoming grant cycle. All grant proposals will be accepted Feb. 1 to March 1. Decisions will be announced in June. To learn more about this new and exciting funding opportunity, join us at our grant information session in February.
