December 13, 2016

The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound recently awarded $408,550 in grants to 74 nonprofit organizations in Lewis, Mason, and Thurston counties through the Discretionary Grants Program.

The Foundation's discretionary grants program is made possible by donors who have contributed unrestricted and broadly defined area-of-interest gifts. The Foundation also partnered with donors with donor advised funds to increase the amount of funds available.

"Unrestricted gifts to the Foundation allow us to respond to the community's changing opportunities and challenges over time," notes Norma Schuiteman, President & CEO. "Donors trust us to be knowledgeable regarding our community's current and evolving needs. They also know us to be good stewards of their contributed funds."

"The grantees represent the broad range of nonprofits that tackle tough challenges and strengthen what works in our communities."
