Video Camera Lending Program

The Dayton Foundation’s Video Camera Lending Program is available to not-for-profit organizations that have received a Dayton Foundation discretionary grant.

The hand-held video camera, which may be borrowed at no charge for up to one week, can help you in documenting the impact of your project and the Foundation’s grant. The camera is very simple to use, and instructions are provided. Completed short videos may be posted on The Dayton Foundation’s website and social media pages, as well as on your organization’s site. Similar videos produced with your organization’s own camera or cell phone also may be submitted to the Foundation for possible posting on our online pages.

To borrow the Foundation’s hand-held video camera, please complete the Equipment Borrower Agreement Form, sign and email it to the Foundation’s public relations officer, Soteria Brown at (937) 225-9959.
