Frantz Ward Extends Application Deadline for 20 For 20 Program

Earlier this month, Frantz Ward announced the 20 For 20 Program (#FW20For20) to recognize and support emerging nonprofits in celebration of our 20th Anniversary. The program is designed to award $40,000 in cash or pro bono support to new, nonprofit enterprises in the Greater Cleveland region.

In light of the unprecedented impact caused by the spread of the coronavirus, we have elected to extend the application deadline to Monday, June 15 to allow area nonprofits additional time as they cope with the disruption caused by COVID-19.

Greater Cleveland's robust nonprofit community is needed now more than ever to support those impacted during this crisis. In addition to focusing on protecting the health and safety of their employees and the members of the communities they serve, many groups are coping with the drastic, but important restrictions on public life. For groups that often rely so heavily on fundraising through large and small-scale events, disruptions like this can cause significant harm. Frantz Ward remains committed to providing you support.

Nonprofits that meet the following guidelines are encouraged to apply:
  • Established in the last five years (after January 2015)
  • Achieved 501(c)3 status
  • Have an active board of directors
  • Located in Northeast Ohio
We will continue to monitor updates and guidance from authorities on COVID-19 so that we can serve our nonprofit community during this challenging time.
