It's that time of year again for applicants to submit their grant requests to the Barbour County Community Foundation.
Grants are awarded annually in the areas of recreation and education, arts and culture, health and human resources, and youth and community services. Applications will be accepted now through Nov. 30.
The guidelines for applying are available online at www.barbourcountycf.org or by contacting Roger Bolton, president of the Barbour County Community Foundation, at 304-823-1831. Applications should be mailed to Barbour County Community Foundation, P.O. Box 284, Belington, WV 26250.
For those interested in supporting the cause through donations, more information about the foundation and how to donate also can be found on the website or by calling Bolton.
"The mission of the foundation is to build a better life for the citizens of Barbour County," Bolton said. "The foundation provides several ways that donors can contribute to a permanent source of community capital that can help do good work forever."
Bolton said that gifts are deposited in a perpetual trust fund. Only the income of the gifts will be spent, allowing the principal to remain intact.
