Schoolcraft Community Foundation awards grants
MANISTIQUE — The Schoolcraft County Community Foundation Board of Directors approved one mini grant totaling $305.83 in its fall grant round on Nov. 4.
The Eva Burrell Animal Shelter was awarded $305.83 from the SCCF’s Unrestricted Fund. The shelter will use the money to buy safety equipment for its volunteer dog walkers.
In addition to 13 designated, or “donor advised,” funds, the community foundation may provide mini-grants from an Unrestricted Fund. The community foundation awards grants twice a year, in May and November. Deadlines for applications are March 31 and September 30 of each year. Applicants are asked to use the SCCF application form, which can be downloaded from our Facebook page or picked up at the Pioneer Tribune office.
Over the past decade, the foundation has given more than $161,000 to local organizations and individuals in grants and scholarships.
