Congratulations to all the grant recipients and thank you for your efforts to improve our community!
Nick Colby MKNA President says,
“Being a part of the granting decision has been a highlight of my involvement with MKNA. We receive many great applications (over 20 this year), all of which are worthy of our support. As a group, we work to figure out how our dollars can be most impactful to our community. Always aware of our finite resources, we regretfully whittle down our list to match available funds.”
And, to those of you who supported the Home Tour—through attending, volunteering, donating, or sponsoring—thank you for allowing us to continue the Vi Walker Grant Program. For organizations wishing to apply for a grant, please stay tuned in early 2016 when we announce the application is available.
