Year-end Critical Needs

Grant Opportunities

Each year, your Community Foundation awards small grants to area nonprofits that assist families of limited financial means. On November 30, 2016, your Foundation, through the Draper Foundation Fund,the Marion Wm. and Alice Edwards Fund awarded $42,200 to 52 charitable organizations serving some of the area’s most economically distressed residents. Much of the $42,200 in critical need grants from the Community Foundation will be used by local nonprofits to provide the most basic of necessities—food, warm clothing and shelter.

2016 Year-end Critical Needs Grants Awarded

2017 Year-end critical grant applications will be available in Fall 2017.

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.
