Grants & Community Projects

As an organization, our goal is to support projects of importance to our community and that will help us all become better stewards of the land. We are continually listening and learning about what is important to you.

Currently, grantmaking supports organizations and programs that serve youth, recreation, safety, vulnerable populations and the elderly.

Please feel free to contact any member of the Advisory Board if you have a project you hope we’ll support.

Because we’re a relatively new foundation, we’re building our endowment and learning what’s important. We’ll use this page to keep you updated on the grants we’re making and projects we’re supporting as we move forward.
