Three Area Groups Receive Grants Totaling $248k

Utica, NY (WIBX) – Three organizations received grants totaling $248,000 from the The Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties, to support projects in the area.

The Saint Elizabeth Foundation and the Presbyterian Homes Foundation each received $100,000 in grants, while Rome and Utica’s “Dollars for Scholars” were awarded four scholarships worth $3,000 each year for four years.

The grant money will be used by Saint Elizabeth to purchase digital mammography equipment, and by the Presbyterian Homes Foundation to assist in Phase One of their Parkinson’s Unit Renovation Project.

Utica and Rome’s “Dollars for Scholars” are using their new scholarships to help one high school senior, excelling in math and science, pursue four-year college degrees each year.

The Community Foundation has been in operation since 1962 and has made more than 3,500 grants, worth more than $31 million.
