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.

“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
