Posted in Rushford Government

The Rushford Community Foundation is seeking proposals for projects or programs that fit the foundation’s grantmaking priorities. The foundation supports new and innovative projects or programs that improve the quality of life and build on existing strengths of an organization or the community. The foundation’s current priority areas are as follows: education, arts & culture, civic & community improvement and human services. Specifically this year, the foundation’s Board of Directors is interested in proposals related to meeting any remaining community development needs that are a result of the 2007 Flood.

More information and grant applications can be found at www.rushfordcommunityfoundation.com under the Grantmaking page or by e-mailing jenhengel@gmail.com. Grants are reviewed on a quarterly basis by the foundation’s Board of Directors. The next quarterly review will occur in late May, so grant applications must be received by May 10.
