The Ohio Common Grant Forms are easy to use by funders and grantees alike. The forms have clear instructions and new technology to make them user-friendly.
Philanthropy Ohio provides the forms as “unlocked” Microsoft Word documents that allow branding by individual funders. In addition, grantseekers can download them to a computer and then type and format responses directly into the forms.
Please note: Philanthropy Ohio does not provide grants. Forms should be submitted to the grantmaking agency and not to Philanthropy Ohio.
Using the Ohio Common Grant Forms:
- enable you to get complete, consistent information from grantseekers;
- allow “apples to apples” comparison of proposals;
- result in better proposals that are easier to read and evaluate; and
- meet application and reporting requirements in multi-funder collaborative initiatives.
These Common Grant Forms are the result of a collaborative effort between funder and nonprofit organizations working to streamline the grantseeking process. Currently, more than 30 funders across the state accept one or more of the forms.
