This has been a year of growth for your community foundation. We were blessed withgenerous support of donations and legacy gifts that helped us reach a new milestone of close to $10,000,000! With this increase in assets and grant making, we are able to help more individuals, families, and organizations support worthy projects and programs.
Your Foundation supported 71 organizations last year (up from 45 the previous year) and awarded $573,099 in grants (up from $323,100). Gifts and donations totaled $2,433,899, which supported the increase in grant making. It is through your generous gifts that we are able to touch so many lives and hearts. It is hard to believe that we have granted over $4,000,000 since our inception in 1979.
