Imagine attending a school district with a total enrollment of 42 students and a playground that hasn’t seen much of an update since 1954. This is one of many examples of why organizations applied for a Coover Regional Grant through the Community Foundation of the Ozarks.
CFO partnered with Commerce Trust Fund to award 21 organizations with the grants. Grants ranged from $4,000 to $19,000.
Grants were awarded for projects like renovating the ventilation hood in a school cafeteria kitchen to scholarships to help needy families send their kids to summer programs.
