Discretionary Grant Letter of Intent Submission Deadline
The first step in the Foundation’s discretionary grant application process is to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) through our online LOI system. The LOI provides the Foundation with an overview of a not-for-profit organization’s funding request. If, after the Grants Committee has reviewed your organization’s LOI and determined that the project falls within our funding guidelines, you will be sent a full grant application.

Join us for the nonprofit board leadership seminar, “Stepping Up Your Governance Game,” led by Dr. Cathy Trower, author of Govern More, Manage Less. This interactive session, which is co-sponsored by The Dayton Foundation and Aileron, will provide ideas and practical steps you can take to improve governance. The session will cover topics such as reasons why nonprofit boards underperform, obstacles to great governance, an overview of the “governance as leadership” framework and its application, and more.

IN THEIR WORDS
“The arts inspire people and give them a way to express what is important to them. It’s reassurring to know that The Dayton Foundation has its ear to the ground and will have the flexibility to support the efforts with the greatest impact on the arts long after we're gone.” – Leona and Jane Dunwoodie, Dayton Foundation donors since 1999
