Grants Catalog Raises $3K for local organizations

June 12, 2018

South Pacific County Community Foundation hosted a spring Community Grants Catalog for the month of May. This grant catalog raised more than three thousand dollars for seven community grant proposals. 

These included two proposals from Peninsula Poverty Response, Food 4 Kids programs in Ocean Park and Long Beach/Ilwaco schools, Pack to School, Grass Roots Garbage Gang, and Timberland Regional Library’s summer reading program. 

Larry Shaver and Kat Shaver of OP Food 4 Kids accept a check from Todd Wiegardt, foundation president. 
The foundation will host a grants catalog again next spring, and asks that interested organizations contact the foundation ahead of time about details. Each participating organization submits a proposal to the catalog, and helps spread the word about its proposal to the community while this catalog is open, which was during May this year.  

Donations for the catalog can be made online or by mail when it is open. 

To learn more, write SPCCF at PO Box 75, Nahcotta WA 98637, email at info@spccf.org, or call 360-665-5292. 

The foundation also maintains  named funds for several organizations, which accept donations at any time during the year. These are online at spccf.org, ‘Give Now’ button, Funds tab.
