The Grays Harbor Community Foundation announced that they have given over $75,000 in nonprofit grants and $38,000 to After School Programs in the 3rd Quarter.
The Foundation tells KXRO that the 11 grants given out are part of the largest grants cycle they have had, given the number of applications. Program Officer Cassie Lentz said, “We were pleased to see the breadth of programs and projects that were seeking funding, from all corners of our county and beyond.”
The organizations that were funded through this discretionary grants cycle included the Grays Harbor College Foundation, Ocean Shores Food Bank, Our Aberdeen, the YMCA of Grays Harbor, and many more.
The Grays Harbor Community Foundation was also able to give $38,000 to five After School Programs here on the Harbor through a fund set up specifically for them. Central Park, Hoquiam Middle School, McCleary, Montesano Community Outreach, and the YMCA of Grays Harbor all receive those funds.
