The Door County Community Foundation is now accepting applications from local charities for Sustainability Grants. These provide the critical operational support for the charities that sustain the quality of life in Door County.
Sustainability grants help pay the salary of a case manager working with troubled teens, buy music stands for a local performing arts group, install piping to bring water to a community garden, and pay teachers to help with math and reading instruction during the summer.
Through the application for a Sustainability Grant, a non-profit organization might receive assistance from the Arts Fund, the Children & Youth Fund, the Education Fund, the Green Fund, the Health & Human Needs Fund, and/or the Historic Preservation Fund. There no longer are separate applications for each of these Discretionary Funds as there were in the past.
Applications are due on Thursday, April 18. Guidelines and application materials are available at http://www.doorcountycommunityfoundation.org/.
