The board members of the Freeport Community Foundation take their role as stewards of the Foundation’s funds very seriously. We are proud of our success in striking a balance between the desires to increase our assets while also addressing the needs of the community through grants.
As our funds grow, so does our ability to respond to community needs, as evidenced by the fact that in 2021, the Board of Directors awarded 41 grants totaling $213,295.97 to 34 local non-profit 501 (c)(3) organizations in support of their special initiatives, programs, and services.. Since 2012, we have granted $1,592,078.00 or an average of $159,078.00 per year for the past 10 years. We have made over 355 grants in that 10-year period.
