Twin Lakes Community Foundation now accepting Giving Tree Grant applications

The Twin Lakes Community Foundation is now accepting applications for Giving Tree Grants from non-profits in Baxter, Marion, Fulton and Izard counties. To apply, vist arcf.org/givingtree. The deadline to apply is Feb. 15th.

TLCF Executive Director Gwen Khayat says the grants are available for a wide variety of charitable causes but this year they are placing a special focus on grade-level reading programs. Khayat says that does not mean they will not fund other worthwhile applications.

The grants usually range from $500 to $2000. Since the Twin Lakes Community Foundation started making grants 16 years ago, they have awarded $258,000 from its Giving Tree Endowment.

Any 501(c)(3) public charity, public school, government agency or hospital in Baxter, Marion, Fulton or Izard counties is eligible to apply. Other applicants may be considered if the project has a clear charitable purpose for public benefit.

For more information or to apply, visit arcf.org/givingtree or call 870-421-3877.
