The Action Fund of Anderson County is taking applications through Friday, Oct. 9 to help local 501(c)3 non-profit organizations for their next round of grant funding.
“This year, due to the pandemic, we are doing things a little differently,” said Suzanne Eiben, TAF member. “This year we will be gifting those who are working to meet the needs of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. All local non-profits are welcome to apply.”
The Action Fund is a giving circle designed for donors to come together to learn about their community and pool their dollars to make high-impact gifts. These funds, available through the grants for which nonprofit organizations may apply, make positive changes in Palestine and Anderson County. Funds collected in a calendar year are dispersed early the following year.
Since its inception in 2013, TAF has awarded grants totaling $272,000 to local non-profits in Anderson County.
TAF was founded six years ago by Ahnise and Hugh Summer, Jo Ellan and Ben Walley, and Francis and Cad Williams.
“Our gifts continue to have a significant impact on our community and our county,” Ahnise Summers said. “Together, we are better; and together, we are making our community stronger.”
Applications may be requested from firstname.lastname@example.org and returned to the same email no later than Friday, Oct. 9.
