The Lighthouse Fund at the Northern New York Community Foundation has up to $2,000 available in grant funding to support non-profit organizations serving citizens in the Clayton and Cape Vincent communities.
This charitable fund was established in 2014 as a resource to area non-profits providing critical programs and services to underserved and vulnerable populations in the two St. Lawrence River communities. Last year, a $2,000 matching grant was awarded to the Cape Vincent Food Pantry to help bolster its community support for the organization and increase available resources to purchase additional food items for consumers.
Non-profit organizations that are conducting programs, projects or initiatives that are assisting residents in need are encouraged to apply through the Lighthouse Fund grant opportunity at the Community Foundation. The deadline to submit a proposal for consideration is April 20, 2018.
Please contact Max DelSignore, Community Foundation assistant director, to learn more about the Lighthouse Fund and obtain the grant guidelines. You may reach him at (315) 782-7110 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
