The Springfield Foundation has granted $24,138 to the Children's Hunger Alliance (CHA) to help the organization continue its mission of providing meals to children facing food insecurity.
This grant was made possible by funds received by the Springfield Foundation's 2022-23 Partners in Philanthropy drive. According to Feeding America, child food insecurity rates in Clark County are at 18.3%. This year’s Partners in Philanthropy drive raised additional funds to be used towards addressing this issue in our community. Generous gifts by donors continue to make a significant difference now and create a legacy for the future.
By granting to local non-profit organizations the Foundation can address pressing social and economic issues, such as child food insecurity. By supporting organizations like CHA, the Foundation is helping to create a more just and equitable community.
"The Springfield Foundation is committed to ensuring that every child in our community has access to nutritious meals," said Suzie Carey, Executive Director. "We are proud to support the Children's Hunger Alliance in their efforts to provide nutritious meals to children in need.” The grant from the Springfield Foundation will help CHA expand its programming and reach more children.
"We are delighted to be a recipient of the Partners in Philanthropy funding," said Crystal Kurzen, Director, Grants and Foundation Relations for the Children's Hunger Alliance. "This grant will go a long way in helping to feed hungry children. We are so thankful for the partnership."
Grants that fund vital programs like this would not be possible without the generosity of donors who contribute their resources to support Clark County’s most pressing needs.
