·     ARCH Community Housing Trust – $25,000 for capacity building

·     Flourish Foundation – $5,000 for its Compassionate Leaders Program

·     Hospice and Palliative Care of the Wood River Valley – $25,000 for general operations

·     Mountain Rides – $15,000 for a cargo trailer for its Safe Routes to School program

·     NAMI Wood River Valley – $10,000 to go toward a coordinator to work with the 5B Suicide Prevention Alliance

 

Spur accepts grant applications on a rolling basis with four review and approval cycles per year. The next grant application window closes on November 22, 2021. To be eligible, a nonprofit organization must offer substantive programs that benefit the local community. To learn more, visit Spur’s website at www.spurfoundation.org
