Cities 97 Vol. 20 grant recipient
In 2008 we received nearly 500 applications for Sampler Volume 20 proceeds. All very worthy charities and organizations doing incredible and admirable work in our community. Our Sampler Charity Committee reviewed each application and began the difficult process of narrowing down the list. Cities 97 listeners gave us guidance in the December Newsletter by telling us what causes and need areas they felt were important and where Sampler dollars would make the most impact in our community. Now, we are proud to release the list of non-profit programs, organzations, and charities receiving a portion of the $1,000,000 generated by your purchase of the 20th Anniversary Sampler.
