Community Grants

A vital part of The Foundation’s mission is to make grants that enhance the living conditions and environment for the citizens of our county. Our grants are made possible through generous donations from families, individuals and corporations who give either directly to The Foundation or through their Donor Advised or Scholarship Funds that we hold for them. The following is a list of our grants from 2007 to the present from all avenues of The Foundation.
