Springing ahead!

In a few days, our clocks will “spring ahead” to Daylight Savings Time. The redbuds, azaleas and pollen count all indicate that our area is not waiting for the official start of spring at the equinox. The Joanna Foundation is midway through the first grant cycle of the year and the trustees are inspired and motivated by the activity and creativity generated by our grant seekers. Here is a quick recap of 2017 by the numbers:

64 pre-proposals received

37 proposals approved

$124,000 distributed

Thank you all for the good work you do! The next window for submitting pre-proposals is April 1-15.  Be sure to take the self-survey to confirm that your organization meets the criteria for submitting
