Non-profit organizations in Greater Cincinnati seeking funding for high impact programs and projects that benefit children are encouraged to submit a grant application request.
Important - reading or reviewing the Grant Request/Application Guidelines should be the first step in the process. This can result in significant time savings for applicants, especially if an organization or its program/project does not fit the Foundation's general grant application criteria.
The Guidelines include background information on the Foundation, its grantmaking history, grantmaking focus, and timing issues. The News section of this web site includes news releases summarizing recent grants made by the Foundation and past annual reports.
The Dater Foundation recently launched an online, web-based grant application process in 2010. Reaction from grant seekers has been that the process is easier and more time efficient for them.
The customized format mirrors the Foundation's previous hard-copy format. Applicants are directed to fill in specific fields and upload certain attachments. They may also upload additional attachments if they choose. A link to the online Grant Application is below.
Anyone with questions may call or email Grants Coordinator Beth Broomall at 513/241-2658 or email bb@DaterFoundation. org. The Foundation welcomes feedback and suggestions about the grant application process.
Grant Evaluation Reports for programs/projects funded by the Foundation are also being handled through the web-based online system. This includes successful Grant Applications that were submitted in hard-copy format prior to the launch of the online, web-based grant application process.
Grant recipients will be notified and sent a web site link by the Foundation about six months after getting their grant award and in advance of their Grant Evaluation Report's due date. A grant recipient wanting to submit a Grant Evaluation prior to being contacted by the Foundation may use the link at the bottom of this page, or contact Beth Broomall at the Foundation office bb@DaterFoundation. org.
Lest a grant applicant spend undue time filling out the complete online form for a grant application request that is not likely to be funded, the Foundation will accept a one-page "pre-application summary proposal" and provide feedback to an organization. This document should include general information about the organization, program/project description and budget, who has or will be impacted by the program, the anticipated amount of a grant request, and other sources of funding. Send to Beth Broomall at bb@DaterFoundation. org.
