We asked, you answered! Thank you for the huge response when we asked for organizations who were diligently working to grow & enhance their communities. In partnership with the Land O’ Lakes matching grant program, we were able to award six matching grants during the last quarter of 2017. Take a look at a few of our grant presentations!
