Requesting Support

Buckeye Broadband’s philanthropic strategy focuses on four areas of giving, including accessibility, education, community, and volunteerism. Common requests for support are for events, fundraising campaigns, educational programs, and a number of other community activities and organizations. 

As a general rule, Buckeye Broadband considers requests from organizations that have received 501(c) (3) tax exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service and which are not classified as private foundations under the Internal Revenue Code 509.

Due to the overwhelming number of requests, we are not able to support the following activities.

  • Golf Outings
  • High school yearbook ads
  • High School proms or other events
  • Sports programs
  • Organization directory ads

In addition, we do not fund the following:

  • Individuals, including funding for education, health care, or travel to or attendance at conferences
  • For-profit institutions
  • Activities for the advancement of a particular religious persuasion or for religious organizations for their religious purposes.
  • Political campaigns, political activities, or lobbying
  • Endowment funds
  • On-going school operating funds
  • Third party fundraising efforts

To be considered, you must complete the online application.

Giving decisions are made by Buckeye Broadband’s Contribution Committee at quarterly meetings. Once all required information is complete, the request will be considered at the next meeting following your submission. Requests must be received in the 60 days prior to the funding event. Please note that organizations granted funding will not be considered for any additional requests until the following calendar year.

Applications without a completed application may not be considered until all material is provided. Additional information may be requested, such as past, current and future financial or budgetary information, donor information, or other pertinent material. All committee reviews and decisions will be sent by email.

All contributions are subject to a post-program review and/or evaluation, at the discretion of Buckeye Broadband. Questions can be directed to Kim Finch, Manager of Community Relations at communityrelations@buckeyebroadband.com.

For additional information please contact us by mail or email. No phone calls please.
