Bessie Minor Swift Foundation grant applications due
The deadline to submit a grant application to the Bessie Minor Swift Foundation is Friday, Feb. 15, according to a press release. Nonprofits in Summit County that promote literacy, reading and writing skills or programs in the languages, sciences and interdisciplinary areas are able to apply. The fund will consider applications for grants between $500 and $3,000. The foundation prefers to give grants for programs rather than grants for the purchase of technology. Recipients are scheduled to be announced on May 1. The Bessie Minor Swift Foundation was formed by the owners and founder of Swift Communications, which owns and operates The Park Record.
