Vandalia-Butler Foundation 2021-22 Grant Applications

The Vandalia-Butler Foundation will be accepting grant applications for the 2021-22 fiscal year from August 15, 2021 through September 15, 2021. Grant recipients will be notified of awards by October 15, 2021.

To be eligible for a grant, an organization must be recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, be nondiscriminatory, and address needs that are not met fully by existing organizational or community resources. Generally, the Foundation makes grants to help launch new projects not addressed by existing organizations or to support special efforts of already established non-profit organizations. A proposal needs to represent a unique and unduplicated opportunity that will benefit a substantial number of people in Vandalia and/or Butler Township.

The Vandalia-Butler Township community continues to grow and evolve.  With that evolution, we know that our citizens' needs change over time.  Finding resources for endowment and then responding to needs now and in the future is the challenge for the Vandalia-Butler Foundation Board of Trustees.

From July 2019 through June 2020, discretionary grants totaling $4,800 were awarded by the Vandalia-Butler Foundation Board of Trustees for the benefit of our community:

Care4Kids - First Light Church $1,000
Friends of Aullwood, Inc.
$1,000
Vandalia-Butler Food Pantry $2,300

Grant Making Guidelines

As of August 1, 2020, The Vandalia-Butler Foundation is temporarily pausing its discretionary grants application and distribution process. Instead, we will focus on a single grant opportunity through The Dayton Foundation's 100 Gifts to the Community Campaign. This campaign will allow The Vandalia-Butler Foundation to have a greater impact on the community through a single project. For the remainder of 2020, we will focus our grant distribution efforts on the purchase and installation of two (2) grow walls at St. Christopher School in Vandalia. These indoor grow walls, consisting of eight (8) grow towers, will be nurtured and maintained by the students and staff of St. Christopher School. The crops from the grow walls, including herbs, mixed greens, lettuce, kale, arugula, spinach, etc., will be harvested and donated to the Vandalia-Butler Food Pantry (plus other endeavors as opportunities arise).
