More than $32,000 granted from Fund for Hutchinson

Hutchinson Community Foundation recently awarded $32,900 to two nonprofit organizations in the second round of its 2021 Fund for Hutchinson grant cycle.

Established in 1990, the Fund for Hutchinson serves as a permanent resource for the changing needs of Reno County. Grants represent an innovative approach or collaboration, a new efficiency, a critical need that requires funding or an opportunity that needs a bit of local support to leverage resources for the community.

Proposals for the grants are accepted year-round, with awards decided in March, May, July, September and November.

The following organizations received grants in May.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Hutchinson Inc., $3,000: The organization is exploring building a second, permanent facility to house elementary-age programming. Requested funds will cover the cost of a feasibility study.

Prairie Independent Living Resource Center (PILR), $29,900: To increase capacity through clear communications and higher visibility in the community, this grant will allow PILR to rebrand its organization and refresh its marketing approach and web presence.
