ST. MARYS — The Elk County Community Foundation is accepting grant applications through Jan. 15 from 501c3 organizations who wish to apply for funding from The Harrison and Muriel Dauer Stackpole Family Fund, the Elk County Society for Special Services Fund or the Elk County Development Fund and Fund of the Future.
The Harrison and Muriel Dauer Stackpole Family Fund is an open grant that supports worthy projects that provide services for residents of area communities. Its goal is to ensure that the fund continues the good works that the Stackpoles did in the community during their lifetime and to support the philanthropic causes that were important to both of them.
The Elk County Society for Special Services fund is designated for any nonprofit agency which provides services for the purposes of providing Pre-K education. Applications should be for improving programs that are already established or developing new programs. The fund will not cover direct operating expenses of an agency, rather it hopes to enhance already established programs.
The Elk County Development Fund and Fund of the Future generally support community development initiatives that will enhance the economic and community well-being of Elk County. Projects should include activities that are innovative and have a plan to sustain themselves.
