Putnam County Nonprofits Awarded Grants

Four chosen from among 22 applicants

The Community Foundation of Putnam County has awarded grants to four nonprofits, from among 22 applicants. Building Bridges, Building Boats, Hudson Valley Seed, the Philipstown Depot Theatre and the Putnam History Museum will each be recognized at a reception Dec. 13 in Cold Spring.

These grants were made from the Community Foundations’ Community Response Grants program, which is funded by donors, the Dyson Foundation Challenge Grant and proceeds from an annual Garden Party fundraiser.

The grants will fund requests that ranged from staff development to technology purchases and upgrades.

Four other Putnam County organizations, including the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department, will receive grants from two other Community Foundation funds.
