Bath Community Fund

Bath Community Fund logoPreserving the history, beauty and legacy of Bath Township

One of this area's jewels, Bath is known for its natural beauty and rural character. Nature preserves, equestrian trails, woodlands and century-old farms make this community a treasure among its residents. 

Established in 2014 by a committed group of those residents, Bath Community Fund is a permanent endowment dedicated to strengthening the Bath community for current and future generations by providing leadership, fostering collaboration, and creating a legacy of charitable giving. The fund accepts grant applications for programs that preserve the township’s historical and environmental legacy; enhance the local arts and culture landscape; serve youth through education and recreation; and meet residents’ social service needs.

Nonprofits interested in applying for a grant from Bath Community Fund can find deadlines and other important information on our Issue-Specific Grants page.

In November 2014, fund leaders launched the"For Bath, Forever" campaign to grow the endowment. In June 2015, they reached their initial goal to raise $250,000 thanks to the gifts of 85 founding donors. Now they are working toward raising $2.018 million in celebration of Bath's bicentennial.

With an endowment of more than $2 million, Bath Community Fund would be able to grant at least $100,000 back into the community each year. Funding can support qualified nonprofit organizations that enhance the cultural, artistic, educational, health and civic well-being of the Bath community. That could include, but is not limited to, the more than 60 nonprofits in Bath, ranging from churches, scout troops and neighborhood associations to civic, business and sports organizations. 

To date, Bath Community Fund has invested nearly $50,000 into local causes that enrich the quality of life of all Bath residents.
