As most of you know the work we do at Interfaith is funded through grants and donations. Each year we apply for grants through a variety of organizations in the hopes of receiving funding for our current programs and projects or for new programs and projects we’d like to start.
In 2001 the AgStar Fund for Rural America was created. Since its inception this corporate giving program has donated over $6 million to organizations in rural communities that work to improve quality of life through education, technology or the environment. Through the Fund, we work hard to identify and invest in opportunities for rural residents and communities where our clients live.
This year we were awarded $2,500 from AgStar to use towards our transportation program! We are incredibly grateful and are looking forward to putting that money to use!
