Atziry-Draws-a-WinnerThe Community Foundation was once again gratified by the amazing generosity of islanders last week at the 2015 San Juan County Fair when over $32,000 was donated to eight different projects featured in the matching program. This amount was raised in just the four days of the Fair!

The Foundation, in turn, will match those donations up to 50% of the project’s goal amount, thereby allowing almost $46,000 to be granted to the following projects:

  • Animal Protection Society’s new shelter
  • Family Resource Center’s senior household essentials program
  • SJICF Women’s Fund membership drive
  • Friday Harbor Elementary School’s young scholars enrichment program
  • San Juan Preservation Trust for Mount Grant accessibility
  • Spring Street International School scholarships for local middle school students
