About this funder:



The Gulfport Energy Fund was established to support the communities where Gulfport operates. Specifically, it will support the leaders within those communities who are creating opportunities for citizens. There are talented, dedicated leaders in schools, nonprofits, and community organizations without enough support to make a difference through their work. The Gulfport Energy Fund was created so that Gulfport Energy’s resources can serve these community leaders.

The Foundation for Appalachian Ohio (FAO) invites tax-exempt organizations to apply for the Gulfport Energy Fund Grant program. Projects that increase quality of life, create access to opportunities, or identify and implement a solution for a community need will be considered. Proposals should leverage existing resources and seek funding to accomplish what other available dollars may not be available to do.

Awards typically range from $500 to $2,500, though up to $10,000 may be awarded. The Foundation’s Grants Committee will review eligible applications and make funding recommendations.

This second grant round will take place in the fall and will focus on projects related to health and human services and environmental stewardship.
