Each year, the Dayton Catholic Women's Club (DCWC) awards Charity Grants to worthy 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit charitable organizations throughout the Miami Valley area.

All Grant Applications are reviewed by the Grants Committee and voted on by the DCWC Board Members. Grant Applications considered are focused on addressing worthy community needs within the Miami Valley area. The size and the number of Grant Awards are directly related to the amount of DCWC Grants funds available each year. Grant Awards in past years typically have ranged from $100 to $3,000.

Before applying, please note the following Criteria, which must be met, in order for a Grant Application to be considered:

  • Your organization shall qualify as a Charity as defined in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
