For Organizations

SummerTime Kids is a grant initiative of Stark Community Foundation. Guided by a volunteer committee and Foundation staff, it provides grants up to $2,000 to imaginative and unique summer programs. These types of programs not only enrich the lives of the youth who participate, but also benefit the community as a whole.

Preference will be given to programs that:

  • Address mental health needs of youth
  • Help make up for learning deficits due to COVID-19
  • Challenge youth to learn, grow and build character through educational programs and activities, virtual as well as in person
  • Engage youth in arts, culture and outdoor exploration
  • Introduce youth to new experiences on area college campuses
  • Reading programs geared toward improving literacy
  • Fill a need or gap in a low-income area such as: provide healthy summer meals and snacks and provide transportation to and from activities

SummerTime Kids will accept multiple applications from the same organization only if the program is serving a different population of children.

Summer is just around the corner!

Deadline: 03/11/2022
Decision Month: April
