Make a Difference Fund Announces Orange County Grant Recipients for 2016

The Make a Difference Fund was established by the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan to provide grants to local organizations that provide services and programs to children of low-income, disadvantaged or distressed families. In 2016, grants were awarded to programs focused in the area of the environment. Each summer, the Distribution Committee, comprised of the Foundation’s Board Members and community volunteers, reviews a high volume of applications to determine which organizations will receive grants in Orange and Sullivan counties.

The board of directors is proud to announce the 2016 grant recipients from the Make a Difference Fund:

San Miguel Academy of Newburgh – a grant of $1,500 for their Outdoor Conservation and Environmental Studies for SMAN Students project.

Safe Harbors of the Hudson – a grant of $1,000 Safe Harbors Recycled Art Contest & Song Writing Workshop Project.

Kerry DiMeo and Father Mark O’Connell of San Miguel Academy of Newburgh receive a check from CFOS Chairman, Josh Sommers and CFOS President & CEO, Elizabeth Rowley.
