For Organizations

NOTE: Stark Community Foundation’s SummerTime Kids grant initiative is temporarily paused while we focus our attention on meeting our community’s needs in response to COVID-19. Please visit this page for other available funding opportunities including the Foundation’s Community Responsive Grants.

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 with an emphasis on character and education. 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:

  • Challenge youth to learn and grow through educational programs and activities
  • Address mental health needs of youth
  • Help reduce summer learning loss at local libraries
  • Teach youth financial literacy
  • Provide summer meals and snacks in low-income areas
  • Engage youth in arts and culture
  • Introduce youth to new experiences on area college campuses
  • Serve a diverse location or populations of youth

Summer is just around the corner!


Please Note:

SummerTime Kids will accept multiple applications from the same organization only if the program is serving a different population of children. (Updated 2.24.14)
