Gift From Charles and Fern Brown Fund at Community Foundation Bolsters Grants to $12,250
ADAMS — The Six Town Community Fund of the Northern New York Community Foundation will support eight community projects with $12,250 in grant funding for programs and projects that benefit residents in southern Jefferson County. Additional support for grant-making this year was made possible through a gift from the Charles and Fern Brown Fund at the Community Foundation.
The Six Town Community Fund was created in December 2012 as a permanent charitable resource to benefit residents in southern Jefferson County’s Six Town region. The geographic-specific fund aims to enhance the quality of life in the towns of Adams, Ellisburg, Henderson, Lorraine, Rodman, and Worth, while maximizing the opportunity for residents to give where they live. Many individuals, businesses and organizations helped establish the fund, combined with a $50,000 challenge grant from the Community Foundation, which the
Six Town region met in 2014.
