The results are in! This year, applications were of exceptional quality and more than $83,156 has been awarded to 37 deserving organizations. We look forward to hearing how these exciting programs go, and are thankful to be able to participate in each of them.
Since 2008, more than $620,000 has been awarded to deserving organizations in the communities where Swift Communications conducts business. The deadline for 2019 grant applications was February 15 and more than 185 applications were received. The Foundation grant criteria calls for detail about the number of people who will be impacted by the organization’s project and how significant a role the Bessie Minor Swift Foundation will play in the program.
The Foundation thanks the many groups that took the time and energy to apply and encourages those that were not selected to submit applications in the future. Applications will be accepted again starting January 1, 2020 with a deadline of February 15, 2020.
