Now through noon on Friday, December 15, 2017, individuals are invited to take a panoramic photo of their favorite part of the region and upload it to the Foundation’s Facebook Page for an opportunity to have a charity receive a one-time, $1,000 Foundation grant.

Participating in this Challenge is simple.

1. Snap a panoramic photo that highlights your pride in the community.
2. Upload it to Facebook, specifically in the comment section of the #Hometown360 post located at the top of The Dayton Foundation’s Facebook page ( Facebook automatically will convert the photo into a 360-degree photo.
3. With your photo post, include “#Hometown360” and a brief explanation for why the photo represents your favorite #Hometown360 moment or location. Be creative and have fun. Photos should represent your unique perspective for the corner of Greater Dayton you call home.
