HAAA 12 17HENDERSON, Ky. (12/17/17) — Five nonprofit organizations received grants from the Community Foundation of Henderson County Saturday night.

The $20,000 grant awards from the endowed Unrestricted Community Fund through CFH were presented on the Preston Center stage in front of a sold-out crowd prior to the Henderson Area Arts Alliance “Home Free” performance.

The recipients, their amounts and programs are listed below:

Habitat for Humanity of Henderson County received $6,800 for its Habitat Voucher Program.

Junior Achievement received $3,200 for its Destination Healthy Lives program along with their Continuing Career and Life Success for Middle Grade Youth.

Volunteer and Information Center received $5,000 for its Henderson Community Online Resource Searchable Guide.

St. Anthony’s Hospice received $2,500 for its Palliative Care Medication Management Program.

Henderson Area Arts Alliance received $2,500 for its Educational Outreach to school children in Henderson County.

"We are excited to make these important grants in front of a sell-out performance crowd to best showcase our commitment to our community,” said CFH president Dawn Kelsey. "We are so proud of the response we have had to CFH in recent years. This culminates a lot of work building endowments through local donors. Tonight marks the second grants from those donor contributions in the endowed Unrestricted Community Fund through CFH and in partnership with the Community Foundation of West Kentucky."

After much deliberation over nine applicants, the board decided by unanimous consent to award $20,000 in grants in each of the four pillars of the Community Foundation of Henderson– Educating, caring, inspiring and improving, CHF reported.

"Not only does this celebrate the good work of area nonprofits, this announcement further celebrates those who give to the endowed Unrestricted Community Fund through CFH, the increasing contributions and the impact on the local community and non-profits in perpetuity," Kelsey said.
