PRCF donations matched 150% in February
Look at any key community institution in the Post Rock Community Foundation (PRCF) coverage area over the past 10 years and that institution is likely to have at least one project funded, either fully or partially, by a PRCF grant.
Lincoln’s Finch Theatre, Art Center, Municipal Swimming Pool and Frisbee Golf Course, Sylvan Grove’s American Legion, City Library and historic depot, Vesper’s Community Center, Denmark’s Community Hall and Preservation Foundation, Lucas’ Community Theater and baseball field, Luray’s Fire Department and Bandstand, Lincoln County Emergency Services, Hospital, Department and Bandstand, Lincoln County Emergency Services, Hospital, Historical Society and Fairgrounds, the USD #298 and #299 school districts, the City of Barnard, the City of Beverly, Hunter Economic Development projects and many local churches are just a few of the many beneficiaries of PRCF grant funding.
Just last year the PRCF awarded $130,000 in grants to more than two dozen different community projects.
Over the past four years the PRCF has hosted a Match Month, taking advantage of a matching grant initiative from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation, a philanthropic organization based in Logan, Kan., with a mission to “reverse the population decline, increase the economic opportunities and strengthen critical community services” in its 26 county coverage area.
After a historically suc cessful Match Month in February of 2020, punctuated by a well-attended dinner at Flyboy’s in Sylvan Grove, this year the PRCF will host a virtual Match Month in February thanks to recommendations to avoid large gatherings in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
PRCF chairman Ruth Sorensen calls Match Month an opportunity for still more growth and community enhancements.
