FSACF Announces its 2016 Grant Recipients

Once again, the Fort Scott Area Community Foundation has awarded grants to 12 deserving organizations within our community. Over $21,000 was awarded at the Chamber Coffee on November 10th. FSACF president Blake Hudson and granting committee chair Patty LaRoche distributed checks to the groups.

We are grateful for our ability to partner with organizations that work for the betterment of our community. Congratulations to this year’s recipients–and a huge thank you to all those who contribute to FSACF to make these grants possible!
