This year’s nonprofit recipients are:

Cody thanked the community for support of the Madison County Community Foundation. “These grants are important to our community and our quality of life,” he said. “Critical programs would not be possible without the generosity of many individuals and organizations that have supported Madison County’s community fund. We only wish we could have assisted more organizations.”
