The Board of Directors of the Morrisville Community Fund has awarded three grants to area non-profits, according to Jan Faulkner, board president.
The following non-profits received funding for their projects:
- Morrisville CERT, $500 for emergency preparedness equipment
- The Kramden Institute, $500 for refurbished computers for Morrisville youth
- The Cary YMCA, $500 for scholarships to summer day camps for Morrisville youth.
At a Chamber breakfast June 14 with local officials and Chamber members present, Faulkner thanked the community for its support of the Morrisville Community Fund as it granted for the first time since opening the fund last year with the North Carolina Community Foundation. “Our hard work has come to this exciting moment of putting funds in the hands of non-profits who are making an impact on the residents of Morrisville,” she said. “Critical programs would not be possible without the generosity of many individuals and organizations that have supported the Morrisville Community Fund. We are so grateful that we can award grants annually and help build the quality of life we enjoy here in our community.”
