2017 Grantees

2017 marked the continuation of our emphasis on smaller, more focused grants, during which we awarded 52 grants to organizations in 29 states plus the District of Columbia (a first!) totaling almost $90,000.  

Our grantees continually remind us that the smallest efforts properly focused can become the seeds from which substantial efforts grow.  So it is with great pride that we acknowledge each of our 2017 grant recipients.
