Some local non-profits received an early Christmas gift Wednesday afternoon from the City of Evansville Endowment Fund.
The group handed out more than $190,000 in grants to 15 Evansville organizations in need of some 'brick and mortar' projects, like air conditioning for Joshua Academy, security fencing for the Albion Fellows Bacon Center, and a new roof for the Christian Life Center. These projects are big ticket items that the groups normally can't afford with operating funds.
"By granting money for these projects, it frees up their money for what they normally do. What their focus would be," noted President of the CEEF Alan Groves.
Each organization has one year to complete their grant project.
The following is a list of the 15 chosen organizations:
To date, Groves said that the organization, which gives grant money away on an annual basis, has award over $1 million.
