Marshall Community Foundation Awards over $300,000 this fiscal year.

16-Jan-2019 The Marshall Community Foundation awarded $308,631 to area non-profits during its 2017-18 fiscal year through its unrestricted grant-making programs.

“When you make a contribution to the Foundation’s Fund for Marshall or Marshall Youth Fund, you are actually supporting the work of countless area non-profits,” said Shannon Tiernan, the Foundation’s Executive Director. “The Foundation’s unrestricted grant making efforts touch every corner of our community – from the arts to education, the environment to youth and seniors, health and human services to community development. This is all made possible through the generosity of our donors.”

Donations earmarked for the Fund for Marshall or Marshall Youth Fund are endowed, meaning they will impact the Marshall community forever.
