Announcing Community Action Grants!

The Whitewater Community Foundation is happy to announce our new partners in our Spring Community Action Grant cycle! We received a number of stellar applications this year, and we can’t wait to share our interviews and site visits with you as the monies are spent and great programming happens in our beloved city.

In total, the board awarded $7,000 to:

Seniors in the Park for its work toward creating a dementia-friendly community;
Lakeview Elementary’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) Team;
Scholarships for Camp Invention at the High School July 17-21;
Rock River Free Clinic’s supplemental chronic disease medications program;
Downtown Whitewater’s plan to provide outdoor speakers during downtown parades/festivals;
and the Lakeview Bookworms Head Start reading program.

We can’t wait to meet all these hard-working volunteers who make our city great! Stay tuned as we tour their projects and ask them the fun questions.
