This foundation awards about $500,000 a year in grants but it is very much driven by the small town relationships of the foundation board. They tend to fund the area churches and any facilities associated with those churches such as schools and assisted living.
Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues, Risk averse
Applied and not funded
The foundation coordinator is very approachable and informative.
They could easily be spreading their funding out more widely within the communities and benefiting a broader spectrum of people but past history shows that their focus is on the churches they attend.
Broaden your scope of the organizations you fund and look outside your personal interests.
The funding they provide has a positive impact on the chosen ones.
