Community Grants Available in Town of Rockland
The Lazare and Charlotte Kaplan Foundation, a component fund of the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, will award grants to charitable organizations and community programs/projects in the Sullivan County area. In his and his wife’s names, this fund was established by Lazare Kaplan, a world-renowned diamond cutter most famously known for cutting the 726-carat Jonker diamond in 1936. In their memory, The Lazare and Charlotte Kaplan Foundation will forever distribute grants and scholarships to residents and organizations of Sullivan County, specifically in the Town of Rockland.
Grants in the amount of $250 and higher, depending on need and merit, will be considered for those organizations that best exemplify The Kaplan Foundation mission statement “to get the kids off the streets.” Examples of programs within the mission statement include, but are not limited to, education to individuals in the arts, sciences and trades, as well as programs like after school activities, educational support, competitions, and recreational facilities, etc.
Those organizations interested in applying for this grant must be located in the Town of Rockland, and must demonstrate financial need with projects or programs that epitomize the mission statement. As per the Foundation’s mission, applications from organizations located in Livingston Manor will be given priority and if there is a surplus of funds, applications from other areas in the Town of Rockland will then be considered.
