Community Foundation awards grants

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

 

It's been a landmark year for the Community Foundation of the Quincy area.

 

The non profit organization presented more than 58 thousand dollars to over forty local charities. Program Coordinator Amy Lehenbauer says it's a great way to assist such a wonderful community. "These grants will go into anything that has to do with the quality of life here, from things like arts and culture and events to health care and education, to human services to helping fulfill basic needs for our community," she said.

To date, the Community Foundation has awarded nearly 2 million dollars to various charitable organizations and has impacted thousands of Tri-State residents since 1999.

 It serves 13 Tri-State counties.
