Join us for lunch as we honor our 2014 grant recipients and celebrate their impact on our community. Learn how the grants committee and the Board of Directors at the Community Foundation directs funds to our most pressing needs in Dunn County….and how how our local non profits leverage our funding to have a huge impact on people in our community and our overall quality of life.
On May 20th, 2015 the Community Foundation will be holding our first ever Grant Awardee Luncheon. Why?
In 2014, almost $100,000 was given out to 23 local non profits or community groups right here in Dunn County to support their special projects or initiatives. These grants awarded through our competitive grant cycle. The grants committee and the Board of Directors of the Foundation are looking for programs that either:
meet an immediate, urgent or pressing need
are innovative, ground breaking or cycle breaking
or substantially increase our overall quality of life in Dunn County
This awards luncheon is an opportunity for us all to learn more about the grant recipients and their projects and to celebrate the impact they are having in our community...
