The Foundation’s annual grant-making process kicks off each fall, but occasionally there are exceptions when emergency grant requests are received. During 2022, over and above the $800,000 in grants made during the FY2021-22 regular grant cycle, four organizations benefited from an additional $50,000 disbursed by the Foundation in support of mental wellness and crisis support for youth, and substance use recovery services and awareness.
