Giving Tree Grants to be awarded Thursday
Carroll County Community Foundation, the local affiliate of the Arkansas Community Foundation, will award approximately $25,000 in Fall Giving Tree Grants to nonprofits working in and for the people of Carroll County beginning at 9 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, at the Carroll County Country Club.
“At this Grant Award Ceremony you will learn about the needs in our communities and have the opportunity to hear from, and meet the nonprofits working hard to address these issues,” said Janell Robertson, executive director of the Carroll County Community Foundation. “Everyone is encouraged to attend.”
The Community Foundation Giving Tree grant cycles, in both the spring and fall, are the signature programs that support a broad range of causes across the county and state – from critical needs to arts and education. The fall Carroll County Community Foundation Giving Tree Endowment and spring Youth Advisory Endowment combined have provided grants totaling nearly $385,000 to nonprofits, schools, church programs, hospitals, and government agencies working for the betterment of Carroll County.
“Our Giving Tree program helps Arkansans support important needs in their own home towns,” said Heather Larkin, president and CEO of the Community Foundation. “Funding for our Giving Tree grants comes from local individuals and families. We invest their tax-deductible donations in endowments that provide a permanent source of funding for charitable causes in our communities.”
Coffee, water and snacks will be provided. The Carroll County Country Club is on the golf course off Highway 62 between Berryville and Eureka Springs.
