Community Foundation Has Grant Money for Non-Profits

NORFOLK -  If you have an idea to improve the future of Norfolk, the Norfolk Community Foundation Fund may have some money to help bring your idea to life.  The Norfolk Area Community Foundation Fund has $30,000 available to help non-profit organizations improve the quality of life in and around Norfolk.  Tammy Day Day, a member of the fund's advisory committee, says six visioning sessions were held earlier this year, and three general themes came out of those sessions. Day says Norfolk citizens are interested in enhancing the arts, culture, recreation and education; they are interested in strategic community development; and they want to strengthen non-profits, helping them to become sustainable.  Those interested in applying for a grant are asked to visit with Betty Froehlich in the Norfolk Area Community Foundation Fund office in the Norfolk Area Chamber of Commerce building. Deadline to apply for a grant is November 18th, with grant winners announced by the end of the year.
