The Community Initiatives Committee approved a grant of $7,500 to have 5,000 brand new reusable purple CFGNB bags made to provide to local food pantries in order to comply with the new plastic bag ban.

We are excited to announce that beginning in 2020 our grants spending policy will increase from 3.75% to 4.0% to allow for more grants and scholarships to be made in our communities annually.

With a record-breaking membership, our 2019 Catalyst Giving Circle awarded the Jordan Porco Foundation this year's grant. This is also the first year our grant has increased from $10,000 to $12,500. Thank you all for your support!
