The Ralph L. Klotz and Claire Klotz Charitable Fund
The Ralph L. Klotz and Claire Klotz Private Foundation, Inc. was established in 2000 by Claire Klotz.
The purpose of the Fund is to promote activities, equipment, and programs for senior citizens in the Southwestern Ohio area in memory of Claire and Ralph Klotz.
Past Recipients include the Cincinnati Area Senior Services ("CASS") to fund their Over-the-Rhine Senior Center, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra ("CSO") to fund outreach programs and concerts at retirement homes, and the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden to fund a senior engagement program that enables Zoo staff to bring various animals to senior centers around the city and to arrange trips for senior citizens at retirement communities to visit the Zoo.
Grant Applications. The Foundation does accept unsolicited grant applications. Grants made to organizations will generally be made only for specific projects and not for general operating funds.
