Warren, Ohio – The Hospice Trust of Trumbull County plans to announce its second round of grants later this year and is welcoming proposals.
The Hospice Trust, with $2.2 million in assets, was originally established to support the work of the Visiting Nurses Association of Trumbull County. When the VNA ceased operations in 2012, the tust was converted to a fund at the Community Foundation to support hospice services in Trumbull County.
Those interested in applying for a grant must complete an application by Wednesday, April 1. An online application form can be accessed from the Apply for a Grant section of the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley website, located at www.cfmv.org.
Hospice Trust Chairman Robert Hoy said the trust expects to approve up to $100,000 in grants this year.
“We are very excited about restoring this source of funding for local hospice care, education and other services,” Hoy said. “Although the predecessor trust has been inactive, people and families who had donated or made gifts to that trust since its creation in 1982 should be aware that the trust is once again supporting hospice services, end-of-life care and grief counseling.”
The Hospice Trust of Trumbull County is a component fund of the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley, which enhances the quality of life for residents and future generations of the Mahoning Valley by managing donor assets, distributing grants and advancing philanthropy and good works. The foundation, with its affiliates, holds more than $56 million in assets and distributed more than $1 million in grants during its 2014 fiscal year. It is the only local foundation with certification from the Community Foundation National Standards Board. More information is available at the foundation’s website, www.cfmv.org.
