2020 Momentum Grants Awarded

Posted Wednesday July 22, 2020

SIx local nonprofits are recipients of 2020 Momentum Grants. Now in its fourth year, the 2020 grant awards totaled $35,000, an increase of $8,000 (23%) from 2019. Momentum grants fuel projects and programs that help people who are facing poverty build momentum as they take steps to reach their potential and positively impact our community.

The Momentum Grant program was established in 2017 at the Douglas County Community Foundation by the Rob and Micki Chestnut family. “We believe that each person possesses great power for good,” said Micki. “When they are given the support they need to overcome challenges and achieve their goals, our entire community benefits.”

The annual Momentum Grant cycle begins in early spring and grants are awarded in May each year.
