About Us

For more than 15 years, The Conneaut Foundation has changed lives in Ashtabula County by investing in local people, their communities and their dreams.

The Foundation has granted nearly $500,000, supporting ideas and building bridges to the future. Our grants have literally built foundations and put roofs over the heads of area residents; have supported educational initiatives, technology, safety services and the arts. School children, Eagle Scouts, senior citizens, student athletes, those in peril and those in need have seen improvement in their lives because of The Conneaut Foundation.

Civic Partnerships

We seek out partners for projects and initiatives that make a real impact in our area. Some of our previous partnerships have helped raise funds for Conneaut School District athletics, build a science center for an Ashtabula campus and hire a new city manager for the City of Conneaut.

Grant Making

We provide about $70,000 per year in grants, which directly impact thousands of area residents by improving education, health care, safety and the arts. Grant recipients must have a 501(c)(3) IRS status and submit an application before the published deadline.

Community Endowment

With a permanent endowment entrusted in financial institutions, we’re helping assure the resources needed for our community to continue growing and improving.
