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

We have heard very positive comments about the impact your gifts have made throughout Bay Village. Your support enabled us to award 8 grants in 2018 totaling over $18,000 to Bayarts,  Youth Challenge, Bay Village Community Theater, 3R Courtyard at BHS, The Village Project, Lake Erie Nature and Science Center, Bay Village Historical Society and Bay Veterans of Foreign Wars.

These grants were awarded based on their ability to help improve life in Bay Village.

Additionally, we awarded four $2,000 college scholarships to members of the Bay High senior class, totaling over $61,000 since 2002 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 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.
