Six “Make It Happen” grants total $83,444

The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation recently awarded $83,444 in new “Make It Happen!” grants in Fauquier, Rappahannock and northern Culpeper counties. 

Designed “to promote creativity, create a brighter future and foster can-do attitudes,” the grant amounts and recipients are:

• $5,450 to Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District to develop and distribute Medicaid expansion kits and offer resource fairs to assist nearly 3,000 eligible individuals with Medicaid enrollment.

• $11,500 to Friends of the Rappahannock for the Upper Rappahannock River Report Card and community education programs.

• $7,500 to the Fauquier County Public Library for the “Internet to Go” program, allowing library patrons to check out Wi-Fi hotspots to complete homework assignments, apply for jobs or conduct business.

• $9,203 to Verdun Adventure Bound for the “Adventures in Learning” resiliency skills and team building program, executed in partnership with Bradley Elementary School and Fauquier CADRE.

• $24,893 to the Town of Remington for outdoor park space connecting Main Street and Town Hall.

• $19,448 to the Fauquier Youth Livestock Advisory Council for vibrantly painted livestock statues to be placed throughout the county, commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Fauquier County Livestock Show and Sale. 

“We have had a strong showing for Make It Happen! grants so far this year,” PATH President Christy Connolly said. “As always, we are impressed by the variety of projects we receive and look forward to continuing to strengthen our community’s health and vitality.”

Since November 2013, PATH has provided more than $14 million in grants and support for nonprofits in the area.
Awarded on a rolling basis throughout the year, Make It Happen! grants have no application deadline. For more information on grant categories and criteria, click here.
