Republic Services and the Town of Fountain Hills are pleased to announce the award of $10,000 to two local non-profits. The Republic Services Community Grant Program was established to support Fountain Hills based nonprofit organizations’ programs and projects. The town administered program will provide funding to the following organizations:
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale – Fountain Hills (McKee Branch) - $5,000
Fountain Hills Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition - $5,000
The recipients have been invited to the March 7, 2023, Town Council Meeting to be recognized by Republic Services and the Town.
With a number of competitive and impactful applications, the grant committee had the difficult task of scoring. However, the grant committee selected the 2 awardees from the 18 submitted applications.
For an application to be considered it had to benefit the community in one of six areas: stewardship of the environment; enhance the natural beauty of the town; provide public enjoyment; support healthy lifestyles; support human services, and/or provide educational opportunities.
The criteria those applications were further judged upon included the overall impact of the project/program with regard to how it enriches the community at large and how it addresses human and environmental challenges and/or opportunities.
Thank you to all of our community non-profit organizations that applied. We look forward to continuing this program next year with support from Republic Services.
