CLEARFIELD – The deadline for the Clearfield County Charitable Foundation’s annual grant program is fast approaching.
Last year over $20,000 was awarded to 19 various charities including local playgrounds, cancer support groups, children and parenting programs, senior exercise classes, food banks, library services, historical societies and student art beautification efforts.
To be eligible for a grant award, applying agencies/organizations must provide services in local communities and be located within Clearfield County.
Priority is given to projects that have potential for long-term impact, support the county’s overall needs, do not duplicate other services and will aid residents not currently being served.
The grants are funded from money held by the CCCF in its Community Fund and the CCL Donor Designated Fund for organizations in Clearfield Borough/Curwensville Borough/Lawrence Township.
These funds were established for the specific purpose of making grants to worthwhile projects benefiting Clearfield County communities.
Non-profit organizations wanting to apply can download the grant forms from the Web site www.clearfieldcharitablefoundation.org or call 814-592-7331 to have them sent to you.
Applications must be received by the end of the business day on Sept. 27. Awards will be announced by January of 2020.
Currently the CCCF has 45 different endowment funds including 14 scholarship funds. As of July of 2019, the foundation’s assets have a market value over $6 million.
Contributions to any of the foundation’s funds may be made at the Web site through Paypal or can be mailed to: P.O. Box 1442, Clearfield PA 16830.
The CCCF welcomes inquiries from potential donors or those interested in establishing funds to benefit local communities and organizations.
