Allegro Fund Grant Opportunities

dayfndlogoAs always, I am pleased to promote the efforts of our good friends at the Dayton Foundation! It is once again time to announce the Allegro Fund of The Dayton Foundation’s Letter of Intent and Application process. You may remember that last year some exciting changes were made to the criteria and now once again, the Fund is seeking Letters of Intent from local performing arts groups!  The Allegro Fund will accept applications from any not-for-profit organization serving the Miami Valley region that performs dance, music, and/or drama for an audience.  Applications for costs associated with performances will also be considered.  The Dayton Foundation considers the Miami Valley region to be: Montgomery, Miami, Greene, Darke, Preble and Warren (north i.e. Springboro) counties.  The Advisory Committee has the option of further defining these criteria.    

Attached are the guidelines for the Allegro Fund application process.  Please read them carefully.

Click here for further details (PDF) and click here for the Intent to Apply form (DOC).

One or more organizations may be selected to receive the Allegro Fund grant and share the maximum grant amount of $17,000.

Letters of Intent (see attached form) should be emailed in Word format to Barbra Stonerock at The Dayton Foundation no later than Friday, September 2nd at 5:00 pm.  If your project is selected for further review, full applications will be due no later than October 19th at 5:00 pm. A funding decision will be made by December 9th, 2016.

Please contact Barbra Stonerock if you have any questions. She can be reached via email at or by phone at 937-225-9951.
