Grant Awards

In 2012, the Community Foundation was honored to award $44,300 to 25 Island charities. The recipients all attended an awards breakfast in December, along with Community Foundation Trustees, and all were impressed by the variety of programs being supported by the Foundation in 2012.

The Community Foundation is very grateful to the ‘Sconset Chapel’s Outreach Fund for once again contributing to this fund, as well as private donations from the Community Foundation’s Board of Trustees who responded to a matching gift from a member of the Advisory Committee.
