The Bill Long Foundation’s annual membership meeting was held April 11th, 2018, in the Heiser Auditorium, Kendal at Oberlin – beginning with socializing at 6:30pm and the business meeting at 7:00pm. Foundation members heard 18 grant requests requesting more than $49,000 from 16 local organizations for Oberlin community projects. This is a unique event as the membership considers the proposal applications and then discusses and votes the level of funding to be awarded. Interested people can become members of the foundation at the door. This year over $37,000 was awarded by the Foundation and an additional $9,200 was contributed by the audience at the meeting resulting in over $46,000 being awarded to projects supporting local activities.
