The Crown Point Community Foundation awarded 16 grants totaling $29,600.00 to the community as part of a Pro Active Grant Initiative for local food banks. Pro Active grants allow the Foundation to identify and address needs in the community which it considers to be pressing.
“Helping the local food banks during the holiday season is one way we can bless families in our communities struggling to put food on their table,” said Mary Nielsen, President of the Crown Point Community Foundation. These 16 grants will enrich the lives of local residents throughout South Lake County, from St. Mary Catholic Church’s food bank God’s Groceries in Crown Point, to Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church’s food pantry in Lowell. Each food bank received $1,850 for the holiday season.
Unrestricted community grants are made possible by donors who create funds to support South Lake County community causes and entrust the CPCF to award those funds to those with the greatest need.
Everyone can help to build community grantmaking funds. And now, because of a generous donor, donations to the CPCF unrestricted Community Endowment Fund will be matched $2 for $1. Please consider making a holiday or yearend gift today. Donate online at: thecpcf.org/donate.html or call 219-662-7252 for details.
