Community Foundation announces grant recipients

Aug. 6—GREENSBURG — Decatur County Community Foundation is proud to make an impact in the community with the help of their generous donors.

Each year, Decatur County Community Foundation offers three cycles of large grants.

Large grants provide up to $15,000 to organizations seeking to meet big needs in Decatur County.

The second cycle started in May and wrapped up at the end of July with the DCCF awarding grants to the Greensburg/Decatur County Animal Shelter for an industrial washer and dryer, and to South Decatur Elementary School to rebuild a deck with a sitting area for reading to kids and observing the smells, sights and sound of nature for science activities.

Decatur County Community Foundation was able to award $30,000 thanks to the generosity of the community.

The third and final cycle of the year's large grants letter of intent is due September 9.
