An amazing feat in Milan

IN Milan last week I had the pleasure of attending the awards ceremony for new grant winners for the Greater Milan Area Community Foundation. This group gave away $30,000 to 13 community charities and growth efforts. I gotta say it was heart-warming to see so many residents touched by the outreach from the Foundation's efforts (and $$$). And, the Foundation was formed only 2 years ago. In Saline, the CARES millage fund has been around 8 years and this month is waiting for confirmation on giving $32k to 2 groups. Good stuff, too, but I have to wonder why more Saline area charities didn't apply for this hunk of cash. The next CARES grant application cycle happens in January. Call the Community Ed office for dates and details and get your charity request in!!
