Your Foundation has had a very successful year. The Foundation's Celebration on March 19 concluded our third season of fundraising providing us substantial capital as we enter our third season of grants and scholarships. The charts below summarize how much we have raised, the cost and expenses to do so, as well as to whom we have made grants and scholarships. Our Foundation was new and we were in the midst of a substantial pandemic during most of our first two years. We wanted to be responsive and ready to help in case unexpected needs and/or emergencies materialized; hence we were particularly careful and conservative in our dispensation of grant monies. To that end, we established a reserve and are pleased to say we enter this funding cycle with sufficient funds that should allow us to meet the goals of our Mission and other potential emergencies should they arise.





We are well positioned to fulfill our mission
