POLSON — On June 30, the Greater Polson Community Foundation awarded funds grants to 14 local nonprofits as part of its 2022 grant cycle. Directors and team members were on hand from Mission Valley Mariners, Flathead Lake Bio Station, Miracle of America Museum, Mission Valley Friends of the Arts, TUFF Film Festival, Ninepipes, CASA, Flathead Lake International Cinemafest, North Lake County Library, Mission Valley Aquatics, the Mission Valley Animal Shelter, Boys and Girls Club of Flathead Reservation, Women 4 Wellness, and Mission Valley LIVE to share their upcoming grant projects and accept funds on behalf of the nonprofits. Since 2009, over $1,121,350.00 has been granted to organizations to meet our community needs. “Being able to support our community non-profits and their projects is definitely a highlight of our year, we are able to do these grants because our donors truly love making a difference” said GPCF Grants Chairman Jeanette Phillips. Gifts and donations make it possible to add significantly to the permanent endowment, which totals over a million dollars. Grants are funded only by the interest earnings from the permanent endowment and are awarded annually. With the 2022 grant projects off and running, the GPCF continues to put our words into action by inspiring philanthropy, community pride and improvement.
