The foundation recently had the first quarterly meeting of 2017. The foundation awarded over $54,000 in grants from the 2016 foundation earnings and donations. We continue to provide annual support to area organizations such as the Jaycees 4th of July Parade, BEST Scholarships, Hartford Beautification, the HUHS robotics team and more.
New grants this year include support for the construction of an outdoor amphitheater at Pike Lake State Park. The Hartford Area Foundation also provided funding to and assist the Schauer Arts and Activities Center in the purchase of a new van for transportation of performers to and from the airport and from hotel accommodations to the Center. The Van will also be used to transport artists and equipment for the outreach programs to area schools.
The Foundation provided funding to help those in need in the area community as well. Funding was approved for the Hartford Christmas Committee, Medical Center Foundation of Hartford, Family Promise of Washington County , Albrecht Free Clinic and Shop With a Cop.
The Foundation continues to be active and relevant to you and your neighbors. Please help us to continue this needed support and join in making a difference to your community.
