The grants range from $7,500 to $50,000.
The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation has awarded more than $1.2 million in “Flexible Funding” grants. The grants to 38 area organizations support missions focused on community health and vitality.
Rather than our traditional annual grant cycles, this year we pivoted to Flexible Funding to provide programmatic and general operations funds to address the continuing need our community faces after enduring more than a year of the COVID-19 pandemic.
— PATH President/CEO Christy Connolly
This grant cycle offered up to $75,000 in unrestricted general operating and program support for 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations, with PATH focusing on organizations and populations with the greatest needs.
“Rather than our traditional annual grant cycles, this year we pivoted to Flexible Funding to provide programmatic and general operations funds to address the continuing need our community faces after enduring more than a year of the COVID-19 pandemic,” PATH President/CEO Christy Connolly said. “We believe these grants will empower our grantees to work towards their missions, and make this a great place to live, work, play and grow – for everyone.”
All grantees have mission statements and/or programs that intersect with the PATH Foundation’s priority areas. In addition, all grantees demonstrated their alignment with the mission and values of the PATH Foundation.
