Update to Our Focus Areas

In 2021, we updated our grantmaking framework at the Char and Chuck Fowler Family Foundation to best respond to the key needs of nonprofits that align with our mission and vision.

As we continue building upon our work in responsive grantmaking, our family foundation is honored to play a role in making Northeast Ohio a great place to live, learn, and work. Across the three generations involved in the Foundation, we work with a diverse set of partners to understand the evolving needs of our community. Through these collaborations, we’re able to identify areas in which we can make the greatest impact.

Based on our current research, one area we look forward to exploring further is our concern for the environment. Beginning with our Summer/Fall 2022 grant cycle, we are pleased to announce that organizations focused on environmental action, awareness, and advocacy—as they pertain to air and water—will be eligible to apply for Foundation support through responsive grants.

For a more detailed description of all our grantmaking focus areas, please visit our focus areas overview. Questions can be directed to Bridget De Leon, Director of Grantmaking, at bridget@fowlerfamilyfdn.org.
