> WHAT WE FUND > GRANT OPPORTUNITIES > RESPONSIVE GRANTS
Responsive grants fund requests from established organizations. Organizations that are newly formed or have budgets of under $100,000 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 on a rolling basis.
Examples of past Responsive grants:
- Christian Children's Home of Ohio, $10,000 to support its Thrive art therapy program
- Lighthouse Ministries of Canton, $16,500 to support after-school and summer programming
- YMCA of Central Stark County, $75,115 to support the Y on the Fly program
 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.
