Recently the Wapakoneta Area Community Foundation completed the first of two grant cycles scheduled for 2020.

Twelve (12) area programs and services that support Wapakoneta and Auglaize County were awarded grants totaling $25,000.

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, the Foundation is allowing organizations the freedom to allocate their grants as they deem necessary, rather than use them just for the specific program that was designated.

The Foundation hopes that the projects funded will be able to be completed once the coronavirus emergency has been controlled, but understands there will be other issues that may need to be addressed prior to the grant projects becoming a priority again.

Fall Grant Applications – Will be available on-line beginning May 15, 2020 through June 15, 2020.
