Silver Creek-Irving fund approves two grants
The Silver Creek-Irving Heritage Fund recently awarded community grants to two local organizations. Anderson Lee-Library received a $3,400 grant to purchase approximately 250 new books to update the Junior Nonfiction book collection. A $600 grant was awarded to the Village of Silver Creek to support the 2022 Music in the Park concert series. The 6-concert music series will begin on June 14, 2022.
The fund, a Community Donor Advised Fund of the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation, provides grants to support new community initiatives, leadership development, and other charitable programs that address the most pressing issues within the Silver Creek-Irving community. Their motto is “Remembering Our Past – Securing Our Future.”
As an endowed fund, the fund will continue to make grants in perpetuity. The fund was established by community residents and others interested in enhancing the Silver Creek-Irving community. Contributions may be made to the fund in any amount and at any time. The deadline to submit applications for grants from the SCIHF is September 20 of each year.
