20 Jul Moundridge Community Foundation announces grant recipients
The Moundridge Community Foundation (MCF), an affiliate of the McPherson County Community Foundation, has named their 2023 grant recipients.
Each year the MCF board reviews applications submitted by organizations that operate in the Moundridge community.
This year over $55,000 will be released to three organizations:
|Moundridge Recreation Commission||Safety Mat for Stage at Greer||Greer needs a mat covering the front of the stage. We currently have a mat that is needing to be replaced. The mat helps protect kids playing on the gym floor, near the stage, in case they run into or fall against the stage at the east end of the building.||$1,700|
|Cradles to Crayons||Moundridge Early Childhood Center||Cradle to Crayons Childcare, in collaboration with the City, USD 423 and the Associated Ministries, seek to develop a new Moundridge Early Childhood Center. This new facility aims to greatly expand the number of childcare seats available to the community.||$50,000|
|Swiss Mennonite Cultural & Historical Association||150th SMCHA Celebration||Swiss Mennonites that settled in the Moundridge area arrived in 1874. Next year will be the 150th
anniversary of their arrival. Swiss Mennonite Cultural and Historical Association is planning a year-long series of events to celebrate that event. The Planning Committee has hired a videographer to assist with the
publicity and documenting of all events. The grant we are requesting is to pay for the videographer and his expenses.
