The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Canton

Responsive grants fund requests from established organizations. Organizations that are newly formed or have budgets of under $100,000[1] are not eligible (please refer to Good Samaritan grant program guidelines). As the board of directors periodically refines its areas of interest, the Foundation may limit the number of responsive proposals it accepts to those that specifically complement its strategic direction.

The Foundation staff review Responsive requests four times per year. See How To Apply for deadlines.

Examples of past Responsive grants:

  • Carroll County Council on Aging: $9,600 to support the purchase of a stove for its meal program
  • Domestic Violence Project: $34,763 to provide start-up support for the Medical Advocate program
  • St. Anthony/All Saints Parish: $45,000 to support the Building Bridges Latino outreach program, over three years
  • Salvation Army Massillon: $10,000 to support the Pathway of Hope program   

[1]  An organization’s budget should be based on sources of income in the previous year with a modest increase.  If the organization is new, then the budget should be based on potential funding sources exclusive of Sisters of Charity Foundation funding.
