WHITE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)—More than 31,000 dollars is going to nine different local organizations in White County.

"We do it every year," said Director for Community Foundation of White County Leslie Goss.  "It is a part of who we are and what we do but this year some critical needs have arisen."

Goss calls these awards a gift of dollars.

"Some of these grants will help just jump over that wall to make things possible," said Goss, and during a curious time in our country, she said each organization will benefit greatly.

"Well this year has been very different as we all know and a lot of not for profits are having difficulties, they all have their challenges sometimes it's operating, sometimes it's extra projects for which there is no funding," said Goss. 

Julie Gutwein agrees. She is the Secretary for the Monon Civic Preservation Society. The not for profit received $1500. Gutwein also serves as a Secretary on the All Aboard Monon Main Street organization. 

"Even before this year, the awards from the community foundation not only helped financially but they validate our purpose," said Gutwein. 

A purpose that's close to many people's hearts in Monon is restoring its historic theatre.

"Right now we need to buy new doors for the entrance to the theatre, the theatre is a long long ongoing project, and they have to be up to code," said Gutwein. 

Thanks to the grant from the Community Foundation of White County that's one less expensive piece of the project not to worry about.

"It's the validation that something is important and that the community foundation believes in our project. It gives us worth," said Gutwein. 

The Community Foundation of White County awards grants during the spring, summer and fall. Last year Community Foundation of White County awarded nearly 300,000 dollars in total grants. Community Foundation of White County is an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette.
