Community Investment Grant

From The Wean Foundation

Established in 1949, we leverage a dynamic combination of grantmaking, capacity building, and convening and partnerships in the underresourced communities of Warren and Youngstown, Ohio. We place race equity and inclusion at the heart of our work to focus attention and resources on the region’s most entrenched challenges.

Grant uses


Community Investment Grants provide funding for the development and implementation of viable solutions (correct analysis, sound tactics and well-designed end results) aligned with our values and strategic priorities. We prioritize principles of racial equity to focus attention and resources on the Mahoning Valley’s most entrenched challenges. Our grantmaking seeks to address long-held assumptions, redistribute decision-making power, and challenge the lack of equitable access to resources, knowledge and opportunity.

We focus support on viable solutions well-aligned with our mission, values, racial equity outcomes and the strategic priorities of:

  • Community Revitalization
  • Economic Opportunity
  • Educational Opportunity
  • Public and Civic Sector Leadership
