The Foundation of Cornerstone Communities (FCC) is pleased to announce two grant awards in the first quarter of 2023.
A grant in the amount of $3141 was awarded to the City of Guttenberg for enhancements to the pickleball courts. The upgrades will include a bench, wind protection fencing, signage, and a practice wall. Pickleball is quickly gaining popularity with local citizens and visitors. These improvements will enhance the playing experience.
The second grant of $1920 was awarded to the Guttenberg Gallery and Creativity Center to replenish studio supplies. The supplies are vital in art programs and events for youth and adults in Guttenberg and the surrounding areas.
The Foundation of Cornerstone Communities supports initiatives and programs that directly impact the everyday health and vitality of residents of all ages in the region served by the Guttenberg Municipal Hospital & Clinics including the clinic communities of Guttenberg, Garnavillo and Edgewood. Since 2020, FCC has awarded 15 grants totaling over $54,000 to service communities.
