Warren Community Action Fund Grants
2017 was the first year that the newly established Warren Community Action Fund began making grants, primarily for Dayton, Columbia County and Waitsburg.
The Warren Community Action Fund will consider requests from charitable 501(c)(3) organizations, public agencies and religious organizations, including churches. The primary area of focus for grants is Dayton, Columbia County and northern Walla Walla County, particularly Waitsburg.
Grants will be made to support programs that will improve the quality of life in the community in the areas of health, education, basic human needs, children and youth, agricultural education and training, historic preservation, scientific programs, arts and recreation, and the environment, among others. Requests for support for capital, project or program, and general operating support will be considered.
The Fund is particularly interested in projects and organizations about which there is some consensus in the community, demonstrated by financial and other support received from other sources.
The Fund is a project of the extended Warren Family to honor parents Robert and Nadine Warren.
Applications for grants ranging from $500 to $20,000 will be considered and are due by midnight on May 1, 2017.
