Community Foundation awards $275,000 in grants and scholarships
The Cape Coral Com-munity Foundation has awarded more than $275,000 in grant and scholarship distributions this fiscal year, which began on July 1, 2016 and will end on June 30, 2017.
Reinvesting in the community through grant making is made possible by the generosity of donors who make gifts that are unrestricted or designated for a particular field of interest. After receiving a record number of grant applications, the CCCF Grant Committee, along with the Giving Alliance of Women Grant Committee, was honored to be able to visit, learn about, research, and carefully deliberate the requests from our area’s nonprofits.
Congratulations to the recipients of the 2016-2017 Cape Coral Community Foundation Grant Program, the Giving Alliance of Women Grant Program & Charity of Choice Program, and donor-advised and designated fund distributions.
