Kresge Grant Completed

We completed our grant application for the Kresge Foundation today for $300,000. If we get this, it will be a challenge grant to help leverage additional dollars. To date the capital campaign cabinet has raised $2 million toward our $4.4 million dollar goal.

Great News!

Today we recieved a $25,000 grant from the McEarchern Foundation!! They funded our full request and considering economic times, I know this was a very generous and sacrificial contribution. Their gfit is significant up front as they help to leverage other funding sources. We also met with Ken Stark yesterday, the Director of Human Services in Snohomish County to introduce the Jacob's Well project. We currently have a request into Snohomish County for $300,000 that will be decided this June. Signing our petition to the right will help show support for the project! Receiving this grant will leverage our Murdock, Kresge and State requests. We are truly grateful for your endorsement of this project.
