Summit 50 Plus Grants

Criteria for Awards

Summit 50 Plus invites you to apply for a grant as part of our annual distribution of funds to the community. We direct these funds to organizations that have existing programs or want to create new programs for 50 plus folks in Summit County.

Grants are awarded based on financial need, benefit to and number of 50 plus folks, and the impact on people served. Organizations that have provided assistance to Summit 50 Plus (e.g. help at annual rummage sale, winter games, etc.) will be given consideration.
