The McConnell Fund Safety Net Grant Awards AnnouncedLocal Shasta County nonprofit organizations were recently awarded grants to assist with operational support through the Safety Net Funding Opportunity provided by The McConnell Fund of Shasta Regional Community Foundation. Organizations experiencing a reduction in revenue and/or an increase in service needs because of the 2018 Carr Fire submitted requests for $5,000 - $15,000. Applications were reviewed and recommended for awards by a local community grant panel.
“Shortly after the Carr Fire, we heard from many of our local nonprofit partners that there was a significant need for operational support given an increased demand for services or a decline in revenue from fundraising events or donations, said Amanda Hutchings, Program Officer at the Community Foundation. “Our partners at The McConnell Foundation, in recognition of the hard and tireless work of our local nonprofit community, allocated dollars to aid with operational support. This rare, but impactful, funding opportunity will make a significant difference for each of these nonprofits.”
