Bath Volunteers for Service, through the proceeds from various annual fund-raising events, conducts annually an application process for two grant areas - Community Grants and Student Grants and Awards.
Starting annually in October with applications due in December, BVS opens the grant application process to local charities and non-profit organizations. Notices are sent to local publications and the Revere School District with directions for application and access to application forms. See community grants tab for additional information.
BVS traditionally supports organizations based on their funding sources, proximity within Summit County, financial impact of the donation, and specifics regarding how the money will be utilized and the number of people it will directly impact.
Student Grants and Awards
Each spring, BVS presents two different financial awards to graduating seniors.
The Scholarship Grant of $4000 is awarded to a graduating senior attending Revere High School for post-secondary education. This grant is based on verified financial need and is paid annually to the school of higher education that the student attends.
Volunteer Service Merit Award
The Bath Volunteers for Service acknowledges the value of volunteering and encourages graduating seniors who have demonstrated that volunteer service has become an integral part of their emerging philosophy of life to apply for these $750 awards.
The Merit Award information and application is provided to local school’s guidance office and available on the BVS website starting in January each year. Only applicants that live in the Revere Local School District or attend Revere High School are eligible to apply.
