Grey Nun Community Fund
The Grey Nun Community Fund was established to perpetuate the mission, values, and philosophy of the Grey Nuns by making grants to organizations in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan that are devoted to improving and protecting the health and welfare of people. The Community Fund prefers to partner with organizations and make proactive grants through an open application process for eligible nonprofit organizations.
The Fund has established its funding priorities to reflect those of the Grey Nuns founder, Marguerite d’Youville, to include:
The Fund especially encourages applications from organizations:
The Grey Nun Fund does not generally fund organizations whose primary mission is education, nor does it generally fund multi-year proposals. The Fund’s grant-making is limited-awards typically range from $5,000 - $50,000.
