PATH Foundation announces $1.2 million in grant funding; variety of Fauquier groups included

Christy Connolly
The PATH Foundation has announced the recipients of its latest round of Flexible Funding grants, including tens of thousands of dollars to Fauquier County groups.

Thirty-eight organizations received nearly $1.2 million in funding to support their missions and strengthen the health and vitality of everyone in our community.

The Flexible Funding grant cycle, originally introduced in January 2021, offered up to $75,000 in unrestricted general operating support for 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations that reflect the mission and values of the PATH Foundation in Culpeper, Fauquier and Rappahannock counties.

“At PATH, we’re proud to support local groups in their important work,” PATH Foundation President and CEO Christy Connolly said in a news release. “We look forward to seeing our grantees use this funding to fulfill their missions. Our hope is that, through their efforts and collaboration, our community will continue to be a place where all of us can live, work, play and grow.”

As unrestricted funds, Flexible Funding grants can be used as needed for nonprofits to meet their missions, according to the release. The awards are also designed to fund a variety of projects, prioritizing organizations and populations that are most in need.

All grantees have overall mission statements or ongoing programs that intersect with the PATH Foundation’s four priority areas: access to health, childhood wellness, mental health and senior services.
