“The TRUE Grants selection committee had a thoughtful and deliberate discussion in selecting these awards,” said Lindsey Lewis, chairperson for the Two Rivers Community Foundation. “The requested funding shows the need in our community and why we are working to build this fund to create a permanent support stream for the nonprofits that serve our communities.”
The TRUE Grants Fund was established as an endowed, permanent fund by local community leaders and the Two Rivers Community Foundation, according to a news release.
The Two Rivers Community Foundation partners with the Western Colorado Community Foundation to build the endowment and distribute the earnings annually.
