Greater Toledo Community Foundation seeking Proposals for Equity & Access Initiative (U.S.)
The Greater Toledo Community Foundation is seeking proposals for Equity & Access Initiative that address a variety of areas including advocacy, economic development, employment and nonprofit capacity. Due to the complexity of these issues, only organizations with experience working within a proposal’s target geography will be considered.
1000 new grants and donors
The foundation is a public charitable organization created by citizens of our community to enrich the quality of life of individuals and families. In response to recent events across the nation and within Toledo, the Foundation created the Equity & Access Initiative to proactively addresses the concerns raised by communities that are disproportionately impacted by inequity and lack of access in the Greater Toledo area.
Actively respond to one or more of the focus areas:
Advocacy: support action-oriented education on racism, implicit bias or other barriers that marginalize communities in the Greater Toledo area. Priority consideration will be given to projects that focus on the Black community.
Employment: Provide access to living wage careers.
Economic Development: Support best practices that expand the number of minority-owned businesses.
Nonprofit Capacity: Elevate existing skillsets of boards and management staff, and address technical gaps of nonprofits that serve minority communities.
Directly address current and legacy concerns of communities that are disproportionately impacted by inequity and lack of access.
Promote coordination, cooperation and sharing among organizations.
Demonstrate a clear understanding of relevant community planning efforts and how the proposed project may correspond to and advance those efforts more efficiently.
Propose a specific project rather than general operating support for organizations.
