The Bill Long Foundation (BLF) provides small grants to projects and activities that meet basic human needs or enrich the cultural life of the Oberlin community and its environment. We encourage applications from organizations we have not previously funded. Our grants typically range from $125 to $3,000. The application process for the Bill Long Foundation grants is simple. 1. Grant application forms are available on this webpage https://sites.google.com/site/billlongfoundationorg/grants 2. Complete the application form linked below. All requests must be received by Saturday, February 1, 2020. 3. Find a member of BLF who thinks what you’re doing is a good idea and would sponsor your request. 4. Submit your completed request in one of these ways: email: firstname.lastname@example.org regular US mail: Bill Long Foundation, P.O. Box 0141, Oberlin, OH 44074 personal delivery to: Krista Long, Ben Franklin/MindFair Books, 13 W. College St., Oberlin 5. Come to our annual membership meeting April 8, 2020, in the Kendal Heiser Auditorium to present your request and answer our members’ questions. Grant requests are voted on by the membership at this meeting so it is imperative that someone be present who is knowledgeable about your request. Groups who fail to do this rarely get funded. 6. Submit by October 1, 2020, a brief written mid-year report acknowledging receipt of funds and providing a summary, as specific as possible, of how funds were used and how effectively the goals of your project were met. Including photographs with your report is encouraged. Those photographs may be posted on this website.
