Meyers nonprofit has money for local projects

The Meyers Community Foundation is seeking grant applications to fund projects that enhance and enrich the community of Meyers.

The grant process involves submitting a short application and attending a board meeting to make a presentation.

The MCF was founded in 2011 by three Meyers residents and business owners who were looking for ways to build community and improve Meyers. The organization received 501(c)3 status in 2014 and has since expanded to a six-person volunteer board.

The group began with a holiday tree lighting and Santa drop, which is now an annual event. Other events include a fall gear swap and this year’s inaugural OMG Fun Run on the Old Meyers Grade.

Proceeds generated by the MCF-sponsored events fund the grants; general donations are also accepted year-round and are tax deductible.

To apply for a grant or for more information about the MCF, go online.
