2022 Grants Reception
The Mathews Community Foundation (MCF) recently held a reception at the Church of Francis De Sales for twenty-five (25) non-profit organizations that were awarded a 2022 Community Impact Grant. Ron Lambert, the board chairman, opened the meeting welcoming the grantees and guests. Lambert commented, “It is so good to see some many smiling faces sitting here today. Even though we couldn’t be together for this event the last two years, the Foundation has been working diligently on increasing our grant funds and sending funds out to many of you during the pandemic.” Liz Hospodar, the MCF Grant Committee Chairperson, then announced the thirty-five (35) grants (a number of organizations receive multiple grants). This year, the Community Impact Grants totaled nearly $157,900, a record. Following the awards ceremony, refreshments were served for the attendees. MCF’s mission is to “Improve the Quality of Life for those Living and Working in Mathews” and is able to continue to serve the Mathews community through generous donations by members of the community and local businesses.
