A new charitable program at Berks County Community Foundation will award grants to organizations and initiatives that benefit the people of Albany Township, Berks County.
The Albany Township Tomorrow Fund will accept applications from Feb. 1 through March 15.
Two grants of $2,500 each will be available. Apply at bccfgrants.academicworks.com.
A meeting to explain the fund and the application process will be held Tuesday, Feb. 11, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Kutztown Community Library, 70 Bieber Alley, Kutztown. It is not necessary to attend the meeting to apply for funding.
Grants must be used for charitable purposes that enhance the overall community in Albany Township and not just the membership of a single organization. Activities will be given preference over facility improvements.
