Record, Journal, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The Oklahoma City Community Foundation Board of Trustees has approved grants totaling $81,598 to 18 nonprofit organizations.

"These grants are meeting a wide range of needs and symbolize the diverse issues the Oklahoma City Community Foundation addresses through its community programs," says Nancy Anthony, Community Foundation executive director.

Each quarter, the Community Foundation accepts applications to grants available through four areas of focus.

The Fund for Oklahoma City exists to coordinate and enhance services and programs that meet the changing needs of the community. Rose State College received $13,560 to purchase equipment and materials for two portable footlockers for the college's engineering and science instructors to use at local elementary schools.

After School Options is a nine-year initiative to raise awareness in the community of the needs of children and youth for positive, value-oriented and developmentally appropriate activities during the non-school hours. Grants issued through After School Options included:

* OKC Compassion received $1,500 to assist for a third and final year with Summer Kids Club, an eight-week summer program.

* OKC Cooperative Urban Mission received $2,000 to assist for a second year with the expansion of Project Transformation, an eight- week summer day camp at four different sites.

* Chapel Hill United Methodist Church received $1,500 to assist with a three-week summer program.

* YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City will receive up to $3,000 to assist with the Play in the Park participants in the summer sailing program.

* Master Gardeners Association of Oklahoma County received $6,100 to assist with an education/demonstration garden between the Oklahoma County Extension building and Portland Avenue on the OSU- OKC Campus.
