The Grand Traverse Regional Community Foundation has awarded $462,052 in grants to organizations across Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, and Leelanau Counties.
Organizations that received grants this season include Child and Family Services of Northwestern Michigan, Elizabeth Lane Oliver Center for the Arts, Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy, Grass River Natural Area, and Old Town Playhouse.
The grants come from the Community Foundation’s designated endowments and include support in five focus areas: arts and culture, education, environment, health and human services, and youth.
Designated endowments are funds established at the Community Foundation by donor partners to support a specific nonprofit partner in our region. Grants from designated endowments are awarded once a year to support the nonprofit partners’ operations and programs. Since its founding in 1992, the Community Foundation has awarded a total of $62 million in grants and scholarships and now stewards $90 million in total assets.Comment
