Community Foundation to accept letters of intent for 2014

The Shenandoah Community Foundation announced it is now accepting letters of intent from organizations seeking funding next year. Non-profit 501 (c )(3) or affiliated organizations serving Shenandoah County may send a short letter by Nov. 1 describing the project for which they seek funding.

Each year the Shenandoah Community Foundation awards grants to area non-profits to support projects in a wide variety of areas. The program is made possible by a donation from Woodstock Anonymous.

Organizations should submit a letter of intent to the Foundation no later than Nov. 1 to the following addresses:

SCFound@shentel.net OR
Shenandoah Community Foundation
P.O. Box 31
Woodstock, VA 22664

The foundation will invite non-profits whose requests fit the program criteria to submit a full application by Feb. 1, 2014. Last year the foundation awarded over $44,000 to 14 area non-profits through its unrestricted grants program. Any non-profit meeting the needs of Shenandoah County citizens is eligible to apply for a grant.

The Shenandoah Community Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization which helps connect people who care with causes that matter in Shenandoah County.
