Year-end Critical Needs

Grant Opportunities

Each year, your Community Foundation awards small grants to area nonprofits that assist families of limited financial means. In 2017, through the Draper Foundation Fund, the Marion Wm. and Alice Edwards Fund, and through gifts made by an anonymous local donor, has awarded 53 charitable organizations serving some of the area’s most economically distressed residents grants totaling $60,000. These grants help provide the most basic of necessities – food, warm clothing and shelter.

2017 Year-end Critical Needs Grants Awarded

2018 Year-end critical grant applications will be available in Fall 2018.

We greatly appreciate the support of organizations such as yours and hope that we will continue to be able to meet the needs of our neighbors.
