This post is part of a series where we will periodically share news from our partners and grantees, as well as local media. Below please find links to articles featuring activities of the Foundation Trust in recent months.
Over the last few months, the Foundation Trust has been pleased to be a part of numerous projects and events that brought people together in discussion of important community issues. We celebrated our first "Emerging Artist" at her gallery show, and contributed to programs addressing food insecurity and providing basic needs to families facing adversity. Check out the media coverage below for a snapshot of what we've been working on!
