Community Fund to award grants

Feb. 19, 2014 — The Carter County Community Fund, a part of the Foundation for the Tri-State Community, Inc., raised more than $10,000 from August through December 2013.

As a result of this effort, the CCC Fund received a $5,000 grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission to award to local entities. Applications were received and seven local charities and public agencies were selected to receive grants.

Seven community groups have applied for the grants, but the final determination will be made by the ARC before any monies are awarded.

The awards will be presented Thursday, Feb. 27, at 6 p.m. at Kentucky Christian University’s Executive Dining Room.

The group’s next goal is raising $100,000 for its endowment, allowing the fund to have sufficient income to make annual grants to Carter County organizations and agencies.

For information, contact any of the CCCF Advisory Board members: Bill Bondurant, Jackie Clevenger, Linda Lowe, Idabelle Case, Teresa Brown, Mark Strother, Keith Kappes, Dan Click, or Mindy Woods-Click.
