DEL NORTE — During the last month, High Valley Community Center was awarded $33,970 in grants from four foundations.
The largest grant, in the amount of $13,970, was awarded to HVCC from the Sprout Foundation, which “was established in 2005 with two compelling and inextricably aligned missions: preserving the health of both our environment and our children.” The money will be used to help with recycling costs and playground upgrades.
The second grant was awarded by the AV Hunter Trust in the amount of $10,000.
“The goal and the operations of the A.V. Hunter Trust have always been to exemplify Mr. Hunter’s desires to give aid, comfort and support to children, aged people and indigent adults in Colorado.”
Support from the AV Hunter Trust is designated for HVCC’s After-School and Fabulous Fridays Program.
The Anschutz Family Foundation awarded $5,000 to HVCC for general operating expenses.
“The Anschutz Family Foundation supports Colorado nonprofit organizations that assist people to help themselves while nurturing and preserving their self-respect. The Foundation encourages endeavors that strengthen families and communities and advance individuals to become productive and responsible citizens. There is a special interest in self-sufficiency, community development and programs aimed at the economically disadvantaged, the young, the elderly and the disabled. The Foundation is also dedicated to funding efforts in rural Colorado.”
Finally, HVCC received $5,000 from the Greater South Fork Community Foundation to help support the After-School and Fabulous Fridays Program.
HVCC graciously thanks the four foundations for their generous support of the organization’s efforts to serve the community.
