The Northern New York Community Foundation encourages non-profit organizations or government entities to apply for up to $3,000 in grant funding for tree planting initiatives in the City of Watertown.
Grant support is made possible through a fund established through the estate of Carolyn Whitney and a gift from T. Urling and Mabel B. Walker. Last year, funding was awarded to the city of Watertown to plant approximately 40 trees. Thompson Park Conservancy received funding to plant native trees to enhance its American Elk exhibit. Since 2010, the Carolyn Whitney Fund at the Community Foundation has awarded more than $25,000 in grant support for nine tree planting projects.
The deadline to submit a grant application for consideration is no later than April 20, 2018. For more information, please contact Max DelSignore, Community Foundation assistant director, at (315) 782-7110 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Northern New York Community Foundation makes grants to support the work of non-profit organizations and provides scholarships to individuals in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence Counties. The Foundation has been built and added to from gifts (both while living and through their legacy plans) by individuals and organizations committed to meeting the changing needs of Northern New York, as well as supporting specific charitable interests and passions.
