The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region and the B’nai B’rith Gideon Foundation have joined forces to offer grant funding for registered nonprofit organizations serving low-income elderly individuals, persons with disabilities, and families of low-income residents living in rental properties in New York State’s Capital Region. Franklin Community Center is honored to work with the Capital Region based B’nai B’rith Gideon Foundation through the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region. The Foundation recently awarded a $20,000 grant to support our low income housing rehabilitation project. Their support helps us to make much needed upgrades and improvements to the building, all while making our community a better place for some of our most vulnerable residents.
Since beginning grantmaking in 2016, the B’nai B’rith Gideon Foundation has awarded nearly $700,000 in grants to Capital Region nonprofit organizations to support low-income rental housing and/or related social and recreational facilities and programs for low-income families and elderly individuals, and persons with disabilities.
