Heartland Bank Community Foundation Support Requests

Request for support

You’ve decided to ask for help – we applaud your determination to your cause! We’d love to consider your request for assistance, but please take a moment to review the descriptions below. Your request might be submitted here, but it is possible that your request would be better served through our Marketing Department.

  • If you are requesting a contribution/grant, these are made only to qualified, federal tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations, as defined by the Internal Revenue Service Code. Contributions are restricted to nonprofit organizations serving local residents in the Central Ohio, Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky areas. The Foundation looks for opportunities where our funding can have a definite, measurable impact on the community or area of focus. Please use the link to the right to apply for a HBCF grant.
  • If you are requesting a sponsorship, these are contributions to a for-profit or nonprofit organization for which Heartland Bank will receive marketing, promotional, or entertainment value. As a sponsor of an event or community function, Heartland Bank is expected to receive favorable promotional opportunities and visibility for associates, gain possibilities for generation of new business prospects, and acknowledgement for support of the community.

Thank you for your request. We look forward to working with your organization, and you should be hearing from us soon!

The HBCF does not fund organizations which discriminate based on age, race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability, family status, receipt of public assistance, or sexual orientation. 

The Heartland Bank Community Foundation recognizes that there are many organizations doing great work in our communities.  However, the requests we receive greatly exceed our annual charitable giving budget.  We regret that we are unable to fund or support every request and often must decline support to worthy organizations and programs.  Such a response does not reflect a negative appraisal of the applicant organization or the value of its services.

We believe an organization's ability to secure a varied range of support is a sign of its strength and sustainability. As our grants are intended to strengthen a wide range of worthy, charitable, nonprofit organizations, we may decline successive-year or multiple-year grants.
