Guidelines

Your nonprofit program must impact the communities served by Aultman Health Foundation including Stark, Wayne, Holmes, Carroll or Tuscarawas counties.

The Aultman Foundation will consider grants focusing on wellness, health education or human services. Special consideration will be given to proposed projects which provide services to the underserved, especially the elderly and children, and/or helps to solve a community health need from the Community Health Needs Assessment. Currently the community health needs are mental health, obesity, infant mortality, opioid and drug abuse, and access to care.

In addition:
• Your nonprofit must be a 501(c)3;
• If your agency has been funded in the last 12 months, you must wait a year to apply again;
• If your agency has been previously funded, you must have completed the required mid-year and final reports;
• The Aultman Foundation does not fund individuals, capital needs or campaigns, annual campaigns, multi-year projects, endowments or government entities including public school systems.

The average grant awarded is $5,000.

If your agency is qualified to proceed, please click here to learn about the grant process, starting with the letter of inquiry.

Please keep in mind that the grant review process lasts approximately four months. The Aultman Foundation Board of Directors meets at the end of May and must approve all grants before any funds can be distributed. If the board has questions, the process may take longer. When planning your timeline, take in to account that your project cannot begin before July.

If you have any questions, please call Jennifer Penso at 330-363-6817 or email Jennifer.Penso@aultman.org.
