Princeton Area Community Foundation Awards $570,000

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

The Princeton Area Community Foundation has awarded $570,000 to 22 local nonprofit agencies that are making an impact in Mercer County.

“Our Greater Mercer Grants program is made possible by the generous support of our donors,” said Carol P. Herring, the Community Foundation’s Chair of the Board of Trustees. “Their support allows us to grant funds to nonprofits that provide critical services to the residents in our communities.”

More than half of the 22 organizations receiving grants are those that work with children, others include a nonprofit that pairs senior citizens with schoolchildren for a reading program, several agencies that run after-school programs for young people, and another that provides tennis lessons and academic enrichment for youngsters from underserved communities.
