Your support of Community Grants reaches far and wide. Friends of the Foundation have offered $60,000 as a matching challenge for this year’s Grants. Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar!
Shelly’s 82 years young. She takes care of her two grandkids, ages ten and twelve, while mom and dad are at work. Shelly never learned to read. Though she doesn’t own a car to get to the library, she’s determined to make sure her grandchildren continue reading through the summer. She heard a friend mention that kids who don’t have access to books fall behind their peers between school years.
Community Grants help make the Book Bus and Book Nooks possible. Shelly's grandkids run to the Book Bus when it pulls up outside each Tuesday. On other days, they walk three blocks to borrow books from the Book Nook.
Your gift to Community Grants means more books in the hands of more people. And so much more than that.
Your gift provides enhanced programming for adults with disabilities. More mentorship pairings. Increased stewardship and trail maintenance on our public lands. Access to the arts and early childhood education. Furthering community connections . . . and more.
