To ensure the ongoing health and safety of our staff, partners and community members and in response to the COVID-19 guidelines set by the State of Ohio, we’ve made the strategic decision to continue the suspension of the Foundation’s regularly scheduled grantmaking, programs, events and access to the facility. Due to the unknown length of the situation, specific rescheduling information is not currently available, however, we encourage you to stay connected through the Foundation’s website and social media for the most up-to-date information. We remain committed to the stabilization, reenvisioning and rebuilding of our community; working toward an equitable Valley for all who call it home.

In order to be most responsive to our community during these challenging times, the Raymond John Wean Foundation has suspended its regularly scheduled grantmaking programs. Instead, we will devote our resources to collective community efforts. Specifically, supporting grassroots groups and nonprofit organizations standing with those of our community who are most deeply impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
