The Chevron Community Fund

chevron_HE_V_RGBThe Chevron Community Fund

Chevron is committed to being a strong corporate citizen and partner and believes that their business success directly correlates to the value they create, including the value they create in the communities enabling our success. To support their efforts, Chevron has established the Chevron Community Fund at the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio.

The Chevron Community Fund was created by the Chevron Appalachian Michigan Business Unit to direct philanthropic resources to the needs of the communities where the company operates. Specifically, it will support the leaders within those communities who are creating opportunities for citizens. There are talented, dedicated leaders in schools, nonprofits, and community organizations without enough support to make a difference through their work. The Chevron Community Fund was created so that Chevron Community’s resources can serve these community leaders.

Typical grant awards will range in size from $1,000 to $5,000.

Grant Cycle Deadlines/Timeline

Grant applications for the Chevron Community Fund are currently closed. Announcement of grant awards will be made directly to recipients and posted to FAO’s website. All grantees will be required to submit a final report at the conclusion of the project.

If you have questions, please contact the Foundation at 740.753.1111 or email Kelly Morman.
