Trumbull County Hospice Trust Seeks Grant Proposals

WARREN, Ohio — The Hospice Trust of Trumbull County is seeking proposals for its second round of grants, which it plans to announce later this year.

The Hospice Trust, with $2.2 million in assets, is a new source of financial support for hospice-related services in Trumbull County. It was repurposed and re-established to carry on the charitable work of the Visiting Nurse Association of Trumbull County Hospice Trust, which became inactive after the local VNA stopped operating in January 2012.

The trust expects to approve up to $100,000 in grants this year, says Robert Hoy, Hospice Trust chairman.

“We are very excited about restoring this source of funding for local hospice care, education and other services,” Hoy says. “Although the predecessor trust has been inactive, people and families who had donated or made gifts to that trust since its creation in 1982 should be aware that the trust is once again supporting hospice care, end-of-life care and grief counseling.”

An online application for the grant can be accessed at the Apply for a Grant section of the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley website, at www.cfmv.org.

The Hospice Trust is a component fund of the Community Foundation. The deadline for applications is April 1.
