The deadline for non-profit organizations to apply for grant support through the George R. Davis Fund for Lowville at the Northern New York Community Foundation is this Friday, April 20.
Mr. Davis was a longtime Lowville resident and served as Lewis County judge for more than 20 years. He established this permanent charitable fund for the community following his death in 2010.
This year, up to $10,000 is available in grant funding through this community fund to support programs, projects and initiatives benefiting the quality of life in Lowville. Last year, seven projects received grant awards between $500 and $3,500.
“This is a terrific geographic resource for non-profit organizations impacting the quality of life in Lowville to consider,” said Max DelSignore, Community Foundation assistant director. “Whether the agency’s mission is focused in human services, arts and culture, education, conservation and environment, or in another sector, a grant from this charitable fund can be far-reaching and broadly support residents in the Lowville area.”
To learn more about the George R. Davis Fund, or receive an application, please contact Mr. DelSignore at (315) 782-7110 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Eligible applications must be postmarked by April 20, or be submitted electronically by the deadline date, to be considered.
