Who selects the final grant recipient(s)?
The OHSB Board of Trustees selects the grant recipients through much prayerful consideration and by recommendations made by the OHSB partners. We strongly encourage all partners who are able to participate in site visits of the finalists to help the OHSB Board make an informed and educated decision.
Every April the partners will hear the announcement of the finalists at the Spring Finalist Event and a presentation from each ministry. At that time there will be a site visit sign up and an alternate day for make-up site visits.
In October there will be an exciting Fall Awards Ceremony to award the grant to the worthy recipient(s). We will hear a presentation from the winner and also present a check at this time.
