Federal grants benefit local groupsWritten by Kristen Criswell | | firstname.lastname@example.org
More than $700,000 in federal funding has been granted in Toledo to assist local nonprofit groups.
Toledo Community Foundation received $500,000 in grants and United Way of Greater was awarded $202,762.
“The grant reconfirms what we do; indeed we are helping the community. It assures we’re doing the right things to grow Toledo in a positive direction,” Keith Burwell, president of Toledo Community Foundation, said.
The money will be used to strengthen and help local nonprofits through The Center for Nonprofit Resources. The Center for Nonprofit Resources is a collaboration among Toledo Community Foundation, United Way of Greater Toledo and The Community Partnership.
Toledo Community Foundation will grant $350,000 to local nonprofits to help build each organization’s capacity. The remaining funds will be used to bring in training opportunities and workshops for non-profits. United Way will use their grant money to employ a consultant to provide onsite education and training.
