Annual Drive

The Bay Village Foundation is your community foundation! Thanks to the generosity of you and your neighbors, we are able to continue to help make Bay Village an even better place to live, work and play. The collective impact of these contributions allow the Foundation to make a real difference in our community.

Your support resulted in eight grants in 2020 totaling $22,667 to the following recipients: Village Project, Bay Rockets Association, Youth Challenge, Bay Village Library, BAYarts, Lake Erie Nature Center and Bay Village Historical Society.

These grants were awarded based on their ability to help improve life in Bay Village. Additionally, we awarded four $2,000 college scholarships to high school seniors living in Bay Village, totaling over $61,000 since 2002 and benefiting 35 seniors. Over the past 5 years, we’ve awarded over $165,000 to more than 20 different Bay organizations and to projects like the Play in Bay renovation and the clock tower restoration.

Your generosity also allows the Foundation to continue to fund one half of the cost of the 4th of July fireworks display and to sponsor the Bay waterway clean-up days. Bay Village is a wonderful city, thanks in large part to our citizens and the active role you play. The things that the Foundation is able to do to help improve our community are only possible because of your generous contributions each year.

With your ongoing support, we will continue to invest in our community and make it an even better place to live for generations to come. Please make your gift today. Thank you for your continued support – your gifts truly make a difference!
