PCCF Announces First Round of Grant Funding for 2022 | News


CIRCLEVILLE – The Pickaway County Community Foundation awarded $ 81,000 in grants as part of an undergraduate funding round in 2022.

Grants include $ 10,000 to the Pickaway County Visitation Center; $ 2,000 to the Boy Scouts of America – Simon Kenton Council; $ 36,000 to Haven House; $ 23,500 to Pickaway County Community Action; $ 4,000 to RoundTown As One; $ 2,500 to Drug Free Clubs of America; and $ 3,000 to the Ross County Child Protection Center.

“Funding for these grants came from many funds held by the PCCF, including the Yamarick family; Welfare fund; unrestricted funding; and a partnership with the community nonprofit, Transformations Through Hope, ”Jama Cobb, PCCF grants coordinator, said in a statement.

Cobb said the PCCF continues to work with employers and the community to develop the Community Impact Fund, which is the path for future unrestricted giving through the PCCF. This fund began in 2021 and will help fund future grants to non-profit organizations in Pickaway County.

“No administrative or operational costs are incurred with this fund, making it a huge win for our community,” said Cobb.

“It’s very rare that a donation is made to a non-profit organization where every penny is reinvested in the community. This is just the start of great things to come. We have partnered with other community funders to help meet the needs of our nonprofit organizations. It’s a win-win.

There are three more grant application windows for local nonprofits to apply and these can be found on the PCCF website, www.yourpccf.org.

“By coming together as a community, we can raise more funds while having an impact on Pickaway County nonprofits,” said Cobb.

“With our local businesses and community firmly behind us, we can continue to provide opportunities and equal access to grants for nonprofits in the region through this funding. We’re excited about this new fundraising collaboration and seeing the value it will bring to those who have funds to donate, as well as to the agencies that need it. “
