As a result of its competitive grant cycle, the Community Foundation of Crawford County (CFCC) recently awarded $87,971.00 in grants to thirteen 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations serving Crawford County residents. While not all organizations have an office in Crawford County, the CFCC confirmed that services are provided to residents here.
Angela Leonard, CFCC Grants Chairwoman and Board of Directors Chairwoman said, “Grants were awarded to the following organizations in two categories, open (unrestricted) grants and education grants. The committee carefully reviewed and evaluated each proposal, then met together to discuss awards. This was not an easy task. We recognize each nonprofit that applied as a partner with the CFCC in providing for needs of our community. They help our community members with all aspects of human services. The CFCC is proud to work alongside them!”
“Each grant committee person struggles through the needs of our community as they review the proposals, said Laken Fraime. “Our volunteers represent every facet of Crawford County and we are grateful for each one of them.”
