Town of Frisco to Award $151,000 to Local Non-Profits at Upcoming Town Council Meeting

The Town of Frisco is proud to announce its continued support of local non-profit groups through its annual grant process. On Tuesday, January 23 at 7 p.m. the Frisco Town Council will be awarding nearly $151,220 in cash and $28,327 in in-kind donations to 40 organizations in 2018. “Giving back is vital in any community,” says Frisco Mayor Gary Wilkinson.  “All of these groups are fundamental to the quality of life for our citizens and we want to see them succeed.” A portion of the money, $10,000, goes toward college scholarships for high school seniors and $65,000 goes to providing early childhood care at the Summit County Preschool. “The resources we provide to these non-profits is very clearly an investment in the future of the community. Non-profits make our town a better place to live for us and future generations.”

Each year, the Town of Frisco participates with other local governments in a coordinated grant request process. In Frisco, grants are typically awarded based on the project’s benefit to Frisco residents, past council allocations, and results from past programs funded by the Town.

The grant request process for 2019 will take place in August; please check www.friscogov.com for more information at that time.  For a list of 2018’s grant recipients, please go to the annual budget section on the Town’s website.
