29 Nov Ambassador’s Club Grants to Recovery Cafe
The Fulton County Community Foundation’s Ambassador’s Club granted $2,000 to Recovery Café, a local organization focused on providing support and resources for individuals in addiction recovery. Recovery Café programming includes weekly recovery circles and small groups, social events, free meals, life-skills training, and a mental health specialist staff member.
“Being in a small town sometimes feels limiting,” says Recovery Café Executive Director Pat Brown. “But not when it comes to care and support. The Ambassadors at the Northern Indiana Community Foundation are such a blessing. They know us, they see us, they talk with us, and they help us. What more could any community offer?”
The Ambassador’s Club, made up of former foundation board members, meets twice a year to award grants to worthy causes in Fulton County. Like many grants, funds for Ambassador’s Club awards come from community funds that are used to make grants that meet the current local needs. To help grow community grant funds, the Fulton County Service Committee Legacy Fund was established by current and former members during Lilly Endowment, Inc. GIFT VI (Give Indiana Funds for Tomorrow) program.
There is currently an opportunity through Lilly Endowment, Inc. for donors to help grow community funds. All gifts to community funds are being matched by $2 for every $1 donated.
Other examples of project and organization grants by community funds include the Rochester Splash Pad, Lucas Devices for fire departments, new dugouts and fencing for local ball diamonds, a generator for the Kewanna Food Pantry, and so much more.
