What are the guidelines for requesting funds?
The IFYF Ohio Committee raises funds each year to support programs and services for youth in Ohio. The amount of funds available to grant vary from year to year.
Requests for funds must be related to the IFYF mission to help children achieve a healthy, active, and educated life
The funds must benefit youth living in Ohio
Applicants requesting funds must be associated with a non-profit organization with a federal ID number
Requests should not exceed $500
Wages and benefits of organization employees, capital improvements, or operating costs such as rent, utilities, insurance, etc. are not eligible for funding
Applicants receiving grant money will be required to report on the use of the funds including copies of receipts and pictures of the children benefiting from the project or funding. However, whenever possible, the IFYF will pay vendors directly for project supplies.
