It’s time again for schools and nonprofits to submit applications for Summertime Kids and Learning Links grants from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation.
Each scholarship supports creative educational programs for young people in the summer months or during the school year. Although organizations may apply for lower amounts, the maximum grant is $ 1,000 for Summertime Kids and $ 1,250 for Learning Links.
Both Grants for Kids programs are made possible by the generosity of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) donors and ongoing support from the Charles H. Dater Foundation.
Summertime Kids Scholarships are available to nonprofits, schools, or churches that work with young people in the GCF’s eight-member ward – Butler, Clermont, Hamilton, and Warren, Ohio; Boone, Campbell, and Kenton in Kentucky; and Dearborn in Indiana.
The funds can be used to support, expand or strengthen existing programs or to introduce new programs. Religious organizations that require a religious activity to participate will not receive funding.
Nearly 200 organizations were recognized by Summertime Kids for a total of $ 187,277 in 2020.
The deadline for Summertime Kids ends on Monday March 1st at 5:00 p.m. The scholarship holders will be announced in April.
GCF Learning Links is available to schools in our eight counties region offering K-12 educators the opportunity to bring creative and interesting projects or events to their classrooms in the 2021-2022 school year.
More than 140 Learning Links applications were awarded a total of $ 137,000 in 2020.
The deadline for submitting proposals is Monday 31 May at 5:00 p.m. Learning Links grants will be announced in July.
