CFGCR in the News: B'nai B'rith Gideon Foundation

From the Times Union:

The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region is always trying to extend its reach.

A resource for all things nonprofit, the Community Foundation joined forces with the B’nai B’rith Gideon Foundation last year to offer grant funding to organizations that serve low-income seniors, people with disabilities and low-income residents living in Capital Region rental properties.

The foundations are more than halfway through the 2017 competitive grant awards, but there are a number of grants with rolling application deadlines and several funds accepting applications over the summer and into the fall.

“Grants from the Community Foundation fund a wide-range of programs, from basic needs like shelter and food, to cutting-edge medical research and innovative cultural programs,” said John G. Eberle, Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region president and CEO. “We’re always on the lookout for effective nonprofit organizations and programs that can make our region stronger, make people and families healthier, and make life better for residents and visitors.”
