Grant applications now accepted

— The Greater Mount Hope Community Fund Inc. is seeking applications for its 2013 discretionary mini-grants.

Fund officials will consider grant requests for projects in the City of Mount Hope and surrounding communities. Requests are limited to no more than $1,550. In order to benefit a greater number of projects, requests for amounts smaller than the maximum are encouraged.

“We continue to be interested in projects dealing with civic beautification or projects designed to enhance the quality of life for those who live here and to make our communities more appealing for those who are visiting the area,” said Sandy McIntire, president.

To be eligible for a GMHCF grant, either the applicant or the proposed grant recipient must be a nonprofit organization, tax exempt under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code, or a public institution such as a school or municipality.

Grant application packets are available from GMHCF, 211 Bluestone Road, Mount Hope, WV 25880 or by calling 304-877-9191 or 304-877-6603.

Completed applications and all requested supporting information must be postmarked or received in the fund office no later than April 30 to be eligible for consideration.

In 2012, grants were awarded to Mount Hope Heritage & Hope for the Main Street Banner project and to Mount Hope Elementary to partially fund a reading enrichment program. In addition, non-grant funds were made available to the Mount Hope Youth Soccer program, Bradley Elementary School’s playground project, and to Mount Hope Elementary.

Anyone may make contributions in any amount to the Greater Mount Hope Community Fund. These gifts will be invested and generate income that will benefit area citizens.

Make checks payable to GMHCF and mail Greater Mount Hope Community Fund,  211 Bluestone Road, Mount Hope, WV 25880.
