Foundation grant awards for community projects and programs are made possible through grants from Community Fund endowments held by the Foundation. Endowments award grants from their earnings each year, and Community Funds leave the selection of recipients to the Foundation Board of Directors. Dollars available from each of the Community Funds are pooled together to make grants. It truly is an example of Community helping community!
