The Butler County Area Foundation Fund’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for all people in the Butler County Area through the use of contributed funds entrusted to its stewardship. One of the ways we are able to do this is through community-wide grants. These grants are awarded in support of public and private services. The purpose of these grants is to provide funding for community projects that will enhance the long-term success and quality of life of the community.
The Fund seeks applications that address strategic community development efforts which lead to population growth, job creation, wealth creation and retention, and increased leadership capacity. These efforts may include support for local entrepreneurs who are starting, growing or transitioning businesses; strategies to involve youth and attract young families; programs to develop and strengthen local leadership; building community capacity including workforce development, and educational efforts to create an awareness of the need for additional contributions to the Butler County Area Foundation Fund.
