Each year, your Community Foundation awards small grants to area nonprofits that assist families of limited financial means. In 2020, through the Draper Foundation Fund and the Marion Wm. and Alice Edwards Fund, the Community Foundation awarded 45 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.
