Request for Support from KILA

The Kelleys Island Landowners Association (KILA), a 501.c.3 charitable organization, is interested in improving and enhancing Kelleys Island.  We ask that KI organizations or individuals with a specific project or initiative that will further this interest and wish for support from KILA, please submit a Request for Support to KILA.  This support may be financial and/or through efforts of our members and volunteers.

We have no formal “grant application process”, but do require a type-written request of no more than two pages (8 ½ x 11 paper; 11 pt. font size minimum) containing the following information:

  1. Requestor’s name and contact information
  2. Title of project
  3. Concise description of project including what is the project, who benefits from it, and how it “improves or enhances” KI.
  4. Approval or support by the Village of KI, if applicable (i.e. Mayor or Village Administrator) or property owner (e.g. park, preserve, school, etc.). 
  5. Type (financial and/or volunteerism) and amount of support requested.
  6. Any other information to help “sell” your proposal.

Please use this link for an on-line request form. You may fill it out on-line or print it and send via email or snail mail.

Requests for 2022 projects must be received by May 1, 2022.  Please send requests to or PO Box 22 Kelleys Island, OH 43438-0022.

Submissions received by the due date will be reviewed over the winter and considered by the board of directors at the May, 21 2022 BoD meeting.  Requestors may be asked to present their proposal at this meeting.
