(WHITEWATER- April 1, 2021) The Whitewater Community Foundation is now accepting applications for the Spring Community Action Grant Cycle. Grants will be awarded to local non-profit organizations actively working to support the Whitewater community.
In the Spring of 2020, with the onset of COVID-19 and the resulting loss of jobs, the Foundation awarded Community Action Grants totalling $21,175 to the following organizations to reimburse them for funds expended in response to the needs of community members struggling with meeting their basic needs: The Whitewater Food Pantry, The Community Space, Bethel House, First United Methodist Church, St. Patrick Catholic Church, and the Whitewater Rescue Squad.
The deadline for submitting applications is April 30, 2021.
Please spread the word to groups trying to effect positive change in the Whitewater area. We look forward to working with leaders who are striving one goal at a time to make our community a greater place to live, work, and learn.
