Thank you for your interest in applying for a Bath Volunteers for Service grant.  The 2023 application process is now closed and grantees have been notified.

BVS annually conducts three fundraising events and thanks to outstanding community support of the BVS Home Tour, Bath Pony Show, and Trivia and Tacos events, BVS is pleased to announce that in 2023 over $57,000 has been returned to the community in student scholarships and grants to 35 area service organizations.  

Grant Recipients


BVS accepts grant applications from local charities and non-profits to fund items and/or programs that enhance their ability to carry out their mission (not general operations expenses or payroll). Grants go to a diverse group of organizations that benefit families and children, including those trying to combat poverty, provide crisis intervention and support exceptional educational and healthcare opportunities.

BVS traditionally tries to support organizations based on their funding sources, their closeness to home (this means not just Bath and Richfield, but Akron too), considering the financial impact of our donation and the reputation of the organization.

Allocation awards generally range from $50 up to $3,000. 

Please note that approved BVS allocation payments are often provided only upon receipt of statements for services or products, rather than in advance. You may wish to take this into account as you plan.
