52 programs and services benefiting Highland Park/Highwood residents receive funding
The Highland Park Community Foundation (HPCF) announced its annual grants distribution for 2020. The Foundation awarded $512,550 in grants to support 52 programs and services provided by local nonprofits to assist and enrich the lives of Highland Park and Highwood residents.
This year’s grants were funded primarily by contributions from the community in support of the Foundation’s annual fundraising efforts, with additional funds coming from the Foundation’s endowment fund. The remaining $50,000 was funded by a grant from the City of Highland Park.
“We’re proud to provide such a significant amount of grant funding to address unmet needs of our community. This year’s allocation more than doubled the amount of funding distributed in 2019 ($225,00), which was our previous high,” said David Reich, chairman of the Highland Park Community Foundation.
