Community Foundation Announces 2019 Opportunities Through the Carolyn Whitney Fund
The Northern New York Community Foundation encourages nonprofit organizations or government entities to apply for up to $3,000 in 2019 grant funding for tree planting initiatives in the City of Watertown.
Grant support is made possible through a fund established by the estate of Carolyn Whitney.
In 2018, funding was awarded to the City of Watertown to plant approximately 40 trees as part of a fall project. Since 2010, the Carolyn Whitney Fund at the Community Foundation has awarded more than $28,000 in grant support for 10 tree planting projects.
The deadline to submit an application for consideration is Friday, April 19, 2019. Grant awards will be announced following the Community Foundation’s quarterly board meeting in June.
