Annually in the spring, the advisory board of the Platteville Community Fund is honored to organize the process for the distribution of funds available from legacy gifts designated for Platteville from the estates of Clarence Gribble, Elinore Loveland, Margaret Keizer and Robert & Marjorie Hartshorn. Perhaps you or members of your family knew one or more of these individuals who were builders of and continue to make this community a special place to live, work, and play.
Nathan Curry, Platteville Community Fund advisory board chair noted, “It is truly an honor to make grant awards in remembrance of Mr. Gribble, Ms. Loveland, Ms. Keizer, and Mr. & Mrs. Hartshorn. Our grants committee thoroughly reviews applications to determine the scope and potential impact of proposed projects to address new initiatives and needs within our community. We take our role as stewards of these testamentary gifts very seriously.”
Grant applications must be completed online and submitted online no later than 11:59 p.m. Monday, April 15, 2019.
