The Community Foundation is a grantmaking organization. Approximately one-third of the grants authorized in 2020 were directed by the board toward strategic initiatives and Community responsive requests that address vital Community needs in Lorain County and to respond to emerging opportunities in a wide range of charitable organizations in Lorain County. Grants awarded through a competitive process in 2020 supported programs across a diverse impact area, such as animals and environment, arts and culture, education, health, human services, and public benefit. The remaining grants authorized in 2020 were as designated to the Community Foundation from designated, donor advised or agency funds. In 2020, a covid-19 response fund was created to deploy much-needed resources to organizations that work with people and communities that were most adversely impacted by covid-19. $245,000 was granted from this covid-19 response fund.
Over 148 scholarships for education beyond high school were awarded to students as diverse as the donors who created the scholarship funds. In 2020, scholarships were awarded for tech programs, creative writing, journalism, medical programs, and many other advanced learning pursuits.
