2011 Granting Night
— January 10, 2012 Story submitted to Swan Valley Star and Times —
The Community Foundation of Swan Valley (CFSV) hosted a granting night last month, giving out $18,329.30 to local causes. In addition to the annual grants, CFSV also gives out 11 scholarships each year and designated funds to Valley groups.
The foundation operates by investing its principal funds and using only the interest in giving grants and scholarships. The CFSV is currently working on its goal of creating a pool of $2 million in endowed funds, to provide up to $100,000 per year in grants.
