The Grays Harbor Community Foundation announced that they awarded 13 grants, totaling $128,900 through their latest grants cycle. “This is the largest discretionary grants cycle, in terms of number of applications, as well as breadth of organizations requesting funding,” Program Officer Cassie Lentz said. “We were pleased to see the extensiveness of programs and projects that were seeking funding, from all corners of our county and beyond.”
Organizations funded through this grants cycle include: Our Aberdeen for mural restorations, Grays Harbor College to making ballet performance accessible to children, Beyond Survival for the “Where We Live” program, and Montesano School District for the field turf project at Jack Rottle field.
The Grays Harbor Community Foundation also gave $40,000 to four local After School Programs through a fund set up specifically for that benefit. Supported programs included: McCleary School District, Montesano Community Outreach, North Beach School District, and the YMCA of Grays Harbor for Harbor After-School program sites in Hoquiam, Elma and McCleary.
Grays Harbor Community Foundation awards these grants quarterly, with applications accepted on the first business day of January, April, July and October.
