County foundation to give out grants

November 1, 2009


Douglas County Community Foundation is accepting applications for 2010 grants from its unrestricted community funds.

The foundation will offer two information sessions for grant seekers this week — 4 p.m. Monday and noon Tuesday, both at Lawrence Public Library’s auditorium, 707 Vt.

A foundation staff member will explain grant guidelines and the selection process.

The applications deadline is Dec. 1.

Through the competitive selection process, the foundation supports projects aimed at improving the quality of life in Douglas County in the areas of arts and culture, children and youth, community development, education, the environment, health and human services.

Last year the foundation made 29 grants in a total of $99,000 worth of community funds.

Guidelines and application forms are available online at
