In October, Pelican Sound residents were invited to nominate organizations to be considered for funding through the Charitable Foundation. The Grants Committee received 21 nominations for 10 different agencies. After reviewing and qualifying each organization for its alignment with the mission statement of the Foundation, eight charitable organizations were invited to submit grant applications. Seven of the agencies submitted grant applications that were due on Friday, January 28th. Applications from these agencies will be reviewed in February and grants will be awarded later in the Spring. We have listed their websites so you can learn more about their organization and mission.
