Grants

Each grant recipient demonstrated it was reaching an unserved group of local citizens with a program that did not duplicate other community charities. All grants are audited and reported to the community. The Foundation will not grant to organizations that are largely tax-supported.

Current Grant Level – 2022

The Grant Awards for 2022 totaled $369,050. We look forward to the 2023 grant review process and announcing the grant award winners in April of 2023!
