Current Grant Opportunities
The following funds currently are accepting grant applications. For additional information about applying for a Dayton Foundation grant, or services available for local nonprofits, visit the For Not-for-Profits section.
The Allegro Fund
The Allegro Fund is dedicated to the memory of Hermene Louise Schwarz, a pioneer in performing arts education in Dayton. This fund provides grants for performing arts organizations to enrich the Dayton community through dance, theater and music. Priority will be given to organizations that show collaboration with other groups, projects that utilize residencies or guest artists and performances that engage the whole community. Requests for proposals will be issued in the summer, generally on a bi-annual basis.
Greenlight Grant Cycle Three
Greenlight Grants are small, quick grants awarded to local, nonprofit organizations in need of funding for special projects, program expansions, capital improvements or capacity building. Greenlight Grants are not for ongoing operations.
