Grant Applications Being Accepted by Community Endowment

The Rockford Area Community Endowment is accepting grant applications for consideration by April 1, 2009. The Endowment mission is “to provide grants and gifts for charitable programs and organizations to encourage scientific, literary, recreational and educational activities throughout the Rockford community, including the encouragement of the arts.”

It is the intention of the Endowment to provide funding opportunities that fill voids rather than compete with already established organizations.

The Endowment serves the greater Rockford area, which includes the townships of Algoma, Cannon, Courtland and Plainfield and the City of Rockford.

Past successful grant applications have included the funding of trailhead improvements to the new Cannon Township Trail, landscaping improvements to the entrance of North Rockford Middle School, National Night Out activities, and improvements to Algoma Townships Veterans Memorial Park.

Grant applications can be found at www.rockford.mi.us, click on community and then Rockford Area Community Endowment.
