Foundation To Give Almost $95,000 In Grants

Sibley, Iowa — The Community Foundation of Osceola County is set to give out almost $95,000 in grants this week.

Grants will be given in a ceremony on Thursday evening (February 15th, 2018) at the Ocheyedan Town Hall at 5:30 p.m. Everyone is invited.

Money for the grants comes through the Endow Iowa program.

We had a chance to talk to Osceola County Economic Development Director Mike Earll, who is one of the people in charge of the foundation. He tells us about the Community Foundation of Osceola County.

He says they don’t give all the money away.

Projects in several categories will receive funds on Thursday, including arts/culture/humanities, education, human services, environment/animals and public/society benefit.
