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 Sullivan County grant recipients from the Make a Difference Fund:
Sullivan County Head Start – a grant of $1,500 for their Discovery Library Project to help enhance existing programs, such as Earth Day, gardening/planting and the butterfly garden.
North American Cultural Laboratory, Inc. –a grant of $1,000 to help fund their performances of “The Little Farm Show” for low income families in Sullivan County.
