Within the recent fall grant approvals, more than 50 grantees received funding.
 
The grant awards benefit local organizations in each of the five counties for programs and projects focused on arts and culture, education, environment, health and human services, and youth. In determining grant awards numerous factors are considered, including community need and how each request aligns with the designated purposes of the variety of endowments the Community Foundation stewards.
