Foundation accepting grant proposals

Staff report

The William Street United Methodist Church Foundation is accepting grant applications, from organizations having recognition under Section 501 (c) (3), for its October distribution of funds. The deadline is Friday, Oct. 7, at 3 p.m. Proposals must be submitted on the foundation’s proposal form and turned into the church office.

The William Street United Methodist Church Foundation is interested in funding organizations that can demonstrate that they have planned their projects with an emphasis on human needs. Priority is given to projects that reach especially those persons whose needs are not met by existing services, request seed money for innovative programs, encourage matching gifts or additional funding from other donors, such as the general public or government and yield substantial benefits for the resources invested.

The foundation was established in 1980 as a charitable, not-for-profit corporation which accepts and administers gifts from various sources to help meet the needs of the Delaware community.

For information or to get an application you can either contact William Street United Methodist Church Foundation at 28 W. William Street, Delaware, OH 43015, (740) 363-4741 or go to to download an application.
