The Northern New York Community Foundation’s Board of Directors recently approved a series of grant recommendations from the Six Town Community Fund committee to support six local projects in the region. It is the second series of grants awarded from the geographic-specific fund that will benefit the towns of Adams, Ellisburg, Henderson, Lorraine, Rodman and Worth in perpetuity. $5,000 in total grant funding will be directed toward these projects.
“Each of the funded projects had a well-developed budget and were clear on their benefits to the community”, stated David J. Zembiec, Six Town Community Fund chair. “The committee was pleased to help get them off the ground.”
The Six Town Community Fund was established at the Community Foundation to be a permanent philanthropic resource to enhance the quality of life in the region forever. The fund’s growth can be attributed to several charitable contributions, as well as a matching grant from the Community Foundation in 2013.
The approved grants from the Six Town Community Fund are:
