Friday, Feb. 14, is the deadline to submit an application for a grant from Women & Philanthropy at The University of Toledo.
“We are pleased to announce that Women & Philanthropy at The University of Toledo has allocated $30,000 — the largest amount to date — to award in grants for UT projects and programs in 2014,” said Judy Potter, member of the Women & Philanthropy Grants Committee. “I would like to encourage UT staff, faculty and students to apply.”
Women & Philanthropy was chartered in 2006 and made its first award to the University in 2008. Through this giving circle, members of diverse backgrounds and interests work collaboratively and pool their charitable gift dollars to make positive, meaningful and immediate impacts at the University.
In six years, the group has gifted $214,931 in 10 grants to the University, according to Chris Spengler, director of advancement relations in Institutional Advancement, member, and administrative contact for Women & Philanthropy.
Through their generous support, members of Women & Philanthropy have created a permanent legacy at The University of Toledo, Spengler said.
Women & Philanthropy is seeking grant applications for 2014. All UT staff, faculty and students are eligible to apply. The grant guidelines, application form, and information on previous grants can be found on the Women & Philanthropy website.
Members of Women & Philanthropy will review the grant applications, and the recipient(s) will be announced in early May.
