VANDALIA – The Vandalia-Butler Foundation recently awarded $250 in grant funding to the Sightless Children Club, Inc. for the Racing for a Vision 5K event.

As a result of the grant funding, each blind and visually impaired child and/or adult who entered the race was given an award for their special efforts. The Racing for a Vision 5K was held to promote community awareness of the Sightless Children Club.

“The Vandalia-Butler Foundation is proud to support organizations that provide remarkable opportunities for individuals of all ages,” said Vandalia-Butler Board of Trustees President Greg Barney. “Each year, the Trustees thoughtfully consider and award discretionary grants that benefit local programs and make a difference for our community.”

The Vandalia-Butler Foundation and its funds are components of The Dayton Foundation. Leadership for the Vandalia-Butler Foundation rests in our own community, while fiscal oversight of our funds is maintained by The Dayton Foundation, which serves the Dayton/Miami Valley area. This partnership allows for the Vandalia-Butler community to benefit from local leadership and profit from resources pooled with others for investment growth.

The Vandalia-Butler Foundation welcomes grant requests from organizations that benefit citizens in the Vandalia-Butler community. To be eligible for a grant, an organization must be recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, be nondiscriminatory, and address needs that are not met fully by existing organizational or community resources. Applications are available at www.vandalia-butlerfoundation.org.
