Table Rock Lake Community Foundation accepting grant applications July 8 to August 29

Table Rock Lake Community Foundation’s (TRLCF) 2024 grant application opportunity will open on July 8. The deadline for submitting an application is on August 29. Eligible applicants encompass a wide variety of worthy organizations in Stone and Southeast Barry counties, with TRLCF considering grant proposals from nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organizations, schools and governmental agencies. In recent years, dozens of community-focused organizations and agencies have benefited from these grants, ranging from several hundred dollars to a cap of $3,000.

“This truly worthwhile effort, open to schools, governments, communities and nonprofit organizations, really helps the smaller to mid-size grassroots groups meet project needs by providing up to $3,000 per grant awarded,” said Nita Jane Ayres, longtime board member of TRLCF and manager of the grant application process. Annually, this chapter of the Community Foundation of the Ozarks, releases between twenty and thirty thousand dollars.

“We have a primary interest in supporting organizations and projects that provide vital community services to improve our quality of life,” said Ayres, adding that the TRLCF has strong interest in projects that provide innovative solutions for existing and emerging community needs.

A major role of the Table Rock Lake Community Foundation is to establish endowed funds for the purpose of funding this community grant-making program, made possible by charitable donors who have established funding programs and have placed the decision-making action in the hands of community leaders serving on the TRLCF Board of Directors.

In 2023, TRLCF awarded a total of $27,442 to ten different organizations including Stone County Historical/Genealogical Society; Galena-Abesville Elementary School; Tri-Lakes Humane Society; Imagination Library Affiliate of Barry County; His House Foundation; SKITS - Shell Knob in the Spotlight; Kimberling Area Senior Center; Kimberling Area Library; CCUMC Community Garden; and Children's Smile Center.
