The Columbia Basin Foundation is proud to be a sponsor of the Ephrata City Parks and Recreation BOLD program. BOLD Summer Adventure Camp is an opportunity for fun, learning, and leadership for area children.
It is a summer filled with plenty of fun events around the Columbia Basin and we can't wait to check them all out! With everything from farmer's markets to fairs and festivals, we've got it all. And the best part is we are making it easy for you. Grab your calendar and start saving those dates! Here are some of our favorites...
On May 11th, the Grant County Sheriff's Office hosted the John Bernard Memorial Golf Tournament in support of the great organization: the Behind The Badge Foundation. With a mission to "honor law enforcement officers who have died or suffered serious injury in the line of duty," it is a cause that speaks to the core of our community and the family of law enforcement officers that work hard to keep us safe.
A big role of a community foundation is to bring awareness to their community partners, in an effort to help lift up organizations that are having a positive effect on the surrounding area. Columbia Basin Foundation has been honored to work with and get to know many of these organiztions. We are delighted to bring you another round of the Nonprofit Spotlight to shine the light on all of the good that these groups are doing in our communities. This month we sat down with Amber Reynolds, Executive Director for the Basin Summer Sounds Festival.
In 2017, we had five different funds that provided much-needed funding for this round of the grant application process, and Columbia Basin Foundation was pleased to announce that we were able to add an additional $12,000 in grants. This additional money came as a result of administrative operating savings which went into the CBF Community Fund. Anytime we have excess money from our operating costs, we happily grant it back to worthwhile projects in the communities we serve. We received 26 applications for grants this year, which made it difficult to select the final list of recipients. We encourage everyone to apply again next year.
