Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Seward Community Foundation has awarded 38 grants worth more than $122,000 this past year to your favorite nonprofit organizations helping in our community! Groups such as the Food Bank, Animal Shelter, Volunteer Fire Departments and our local schools have benefited from your donations. Only the earnings from our endowment funds are distributed for local needs; your donations continue to give year after year improving our community.
As 2018 comes to an end, we are reaching out to you to help us continue our work by making a year-end donation to SCF. The Advisory Board and I have a special request. Please consider directing your donation to the SCF Operating Endowment Fund. Though we are a volunteer-led organization, it takes funds to operate. We still need to raise $7,000 to achieve our 2018 goal of $15,000 for the Operating Endowment. Your donation will be matched by the Rasmuson Foundation, doubling the impact your gift will make! Donations may be made by going to our online donation form at https://sewardcf.org/give-today/. Choose “Seward Community Foundation Operating Endowment” from the drop-down list.
It is a privilege to partner with you to make positive, lasting changes in our communities. Thank you for your past and future generosity. Together we are connecting people who care with causes that matter. In this season of goodwill, all of us at the Seward Community Foundation wish you a healthy and prosperous New Year!
Kimberly Reierson, President Seward Community Foundation
