Medina County Community Fund's Letter from the Chair - Winter 2023
Medina County residents care about their communities, and so do we. The Medina County Community Fund continues its dedication to enhancing the quality of life from Hinckley to Brunswick and Westfield to Wadsworth. I am pleased to welcome three new advisory board members: Laure Javorsky, Edward Hopson and Brian Frasier. We have a dynamic and committed advisory board that will stay focused on our fund’s four "pillars" of funding: arts and culture, community service, education, and health.
As a collective board, we are in the midst our grant distribution process. Here are some key dates:
- Feb. 1, 2023 – Grant cycle opens
- March 1, 2023 – Grant application deadline
- June 2, 2023 – Grants are approved, with notification to the recipients in late June
As we look at the year ahead, we continue to be focused on growing the fund through enhanced awareness, increased small group meetings with individuals/businesses, and meetings with our nonprofit leaders to further understand the changing needs of our communities.
Please feel free to contact me, or any advisory board member, to discuss how we can help make a difference. We welcome community members to join us for any of our standing committee meetings in order to learn more about our mission and becoming a donor.
Jim Brocklehurst, Chair
