SNOW-REDFERN FOUNDATION AWARDS GRANTS FOR 2017


The Snow-Redfern Foundation, of Alliance, Nebraska, has awarded grants for the 2017 year 82 organizations across the state of Nebraska, and 27 different communities.  These organizations have demonstrated through their applications that they serve needy youth and families. The grants are only given to organizations that provide direct services for youth.  This has ensured that the Mission Statement of the Foundation is being achieved, in that they continue to meet the wishes of Mrs. Redfern, by caring for those less fortunate.  Each organization will be receiving their funds in November, and are able to use them for programs they have defined in their application.  Once the funds have been used, they share information back to the Foundation, how the money was specifically used. Here are the Organizations, by region, that received funds. Please take a moment to see if an organization in your community has received a grant.

One goal of the Foundation is to expand how much is awarded each year, as well as increase the number of organizations that receive awards.  As the investments grow, the amounts awarded can be increased.  If you have questions about this process, or comments you would like to share, please send them to srf@bbc.net or phone 308-760-1416 to speak with Stan Bills, the Executive Director for the Foundation.  You may also visit our website at www.snowredfern.org.
