Obituary Grant Fund

At Cleveland 13, we understand that publishing an online obituary can be both costly and time-consuming, often adding to the stress of grieving families. To ease this burden, we offer a compassionate and affordable solution. Our service hosts perpetual obituaries at a fixed, affordable price of just $49. This rate is guaranteed never to increase, ensuring transparency and peace of mind. Inspired by the generosity of several members from our advisory board, we've established the Obituary Grant Fund. This initiative offers financial assistance to those who might find even our minimal cost challenging. We've opened this fund to contributions from anyone wishing to extend a helping hand to those in need during their times of loss.

Contributing to the Obituary Grant Fund is straightforward and inclusive. You can make your contribution online by clicking here and selecting “Obituary Fund” on the form. Alternatively, for those who prefer digital payment platforms, contributions can be sent via CashApp, PayPal, or Venmo to @Cleveland13News, with “Obituary Fund” noted in the memo. Your generosity can make a significant difference, ensuring that every family has the opportunity to honor and remember their loved ones in a dignified and lasting manner.

Small Business Fund

We understand the crucial role small businesses play in the vibrancy and economy of our local communities. Recognizing the challenges they face, particularly in advertising and marketing, we've established the Small Business Fund. This initiative is not just about covering advertising costs; it's a comprehensive support system for new and struggling Cleveland small businesses to enhance their presence. Through the Small Business Fund, we assist these businesses in gaining exposure on the Cleveland 13 News website and during our news segments, reaching thousands of Cleveland residents every day. This exposure is vital for businesses starting out or those facing difficulties, helping them connect with a broader audience and spread the word about their products and services.

We also provide essential marketing materials and services. This includes professional commercial editing, voice-over work for ads, and other creative services that small businesses often find costly or hard to access. Our aim is to equip these businesses with high-quality marketing tools, giving them the best chance to thrive and grow. Contributing to the Small Business Ad Fund means directly supporting the health and diversity of Cleveland's economic landscape.

Community Program Fund

We recognize the immense value that community programs and initiatives bring to the cultural and social fabric of Northeast Ohio; and understanding the challenges these programs often face in gaining visibility and outreach, we've created the Community Program Fund. This fund is not merely a financial resource; it's a comprehensive support network designed to elevate and amplify the voices of local community programs. Through this Fund, we empower these valuable initiatives by providing extensive advertising services. This includes prominent space on the Cleveland 13 News website and the integration of professionally produced video ads during our news segments. In addition to advertising space, our fund extends support by offering a range of marketing tools and services. This encompasses professional video editing, engaging voice-over production for ads, and other creative solutions that are often beyond the reach of community-based programs due to resource constraints. 

Supporting the Community Program Fund is an investment in the heart and soul of our communities. It's a direct contribution to the enrichment and advancement of Northeast Ohio's communal landscape. By contributing to this fund, you're playing a pivotal role in nurturing and promoting the programs that make our communities more vibrant, inclusive, and dynamic.
