20 FOR 20

Frantz Ward is proud to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. As a reflection on our entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to the communities in which we live and work, we have created the 20 For 20 Program to recognize emerging nonprofits.

The 20 For 20 Program (#FW20For20) will donate cash and/or nonprofit services to 20 nonprofit organizations. 20 will receive $1,000 and one will receive an additional $20,000 grant. The recipient of the $20,000 will be decided via a social media campaign open to the public to vote.

Participation in 20 For 20 was open to nonprofit organizations that meet the following criteria:
  • Established in the last five years (after January 1, 2015)
  • Achieved 501(c)3 status
  • Have an active board of directors
  • Based in Northeast Ohio
We received over 65 applications and have now narrowed to 20 finalists.

CLICK HERE to learn more about each organization and cast your vote! To vote for an organization, simply 'Like', 'Love', or select any reaction on the organization's page in Facebook the photo album.
The deadline to vote is Monday, August 17 at 11:59pm.
