The Crown Point Community Foundation awarded $148,369.85 in grants as part of its September grant cycle.
The grants will assist organizations in the South Lake County communities of Crown Point, Cedar Lake, Lowell (Tri-Creek Townships) and Winfield.
Community grants are made possible by donors who create Unrestricted Endowment Funds to support South Lake County causes and entrust the CPCF to allocate those funds to a broad range of community projects and needs. Two grants also were awarded from Field of Interest Funds, also entrusted for allocation by the foundation.
Additional information on how the grant recipients will use the funds is available on the foundation’s website.
