Foundation announces 2009 giving campaign

The Sweet Home Community Foundation has announced the beginning of its “2009 Community Giving Campaign.” Those who have assisted us in the past will soon receive a mailing with updated information on our activities and will be asked to continue their financial support.

The money we receive from this once a year effort allows us to provide assistance grants to many local groups and organizations. It’s the work these groups do in our community that makes Sweet Home such a wonderful place to live.

The goal of the Foundation is to provide funding to a wide variety of projects and activities that provide lasting improvements to the community. Grants are given in the following categories: Children and Families, Education, Livability, and Arts and Culture.

If you would like to assist us in our continuing efforts, please complete and return the Giving Coupon found in this edition of the New Era. As a 501c3 organization, donations to SHCF are fully tax deductable and donors can be assured that all money given to SHCF stays within the Sweet Home community.
