On Sunday, September 24, we listened to the presenters representing the agencies who had moved one step closer to receiving the first WIN grant. Our sincere thanks to Tracy, Susan and Trisha for their informative presentations as follows:
Tracy Beattie, President/CEO Starved Rock Regional Center $500 Autism Center Resources
Susan Bursztynsky, Exec. Director ADV/SAS $2030 Office Location Expansion
Trisha Schafer, Community Relations Director Freedom House $8500 Youth Empowerment Program Expansion
Susan Busztynsky, Exec. Director ADV/SAS $2750 Recognize, Respond, Refer – Awareness Campaign
We cannot thank all of you enough for believing in WIN and contributing to the Giving Circle. We should all be very proud. More than $13,000 has been raised, and will allow for grant(s) totaling $9500, funds to cover administrative expenses, and the beginning of our savings toward the WIN Endowment Fund.
It is now time to vote! Only Founding Members and Members are eligible to vote. The total of $9500 may be awarded to more than one program. Please see the attached WIN GRANT AWARD BALLOT. This slate of options has been prepared after careful consideration and concurrence by the Grants Review Team. Please review the attached materials carefully and return your ballot with your choice clearly marked, to the Foundation Office (SRCCF, 718 Columbus, Ottawa, IL 61350) via email, postal mail or in person, no later than October 13, 2017. Please be sure to sign and date your ballot.
Grant checks will be presented at the Celebration of Giving to be held November 19, 2017. Please plan to attend and bring your spouse/guest. It will be a very lovely, rewarding evening!
