Golden Belt Community Foundation Announces Library Grants


GREAT BEND, Kan. – The Golden Belt Community Foundation is pleased to announce awards grants to libraries in the Barton, Rush, Pawnee, and Stafford counties. In 2002 Golden Belt Community Foundation made its first grants to libraries across the 4-county area for $250 each. It was exciting as this was the start of the foundation’s work as a philanthropic organization. In celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Golden Belt Community Foundation, the Board of Directors, and staff thought it would be exciting to “recreate” the library grants from the beginning.

Each of the twelve libraries listed from the 4-county area that the Golden Belt Community Foundation serves will be receiving an $800 grant from the foundation to be used to support youth programs and/or materials for the library.
