Just a reminder about the coming the Greater Lowell Community Foundation Grant proposal deadline – it’s Tuesday July 1, 2014. A letter from GLCF Executive Director Susan Winship spells out the details and shows the community the scope of what the Foundation supports. This year the Distribution Committee with Trustee approval will grant $94,500  to be awarded at the “Celebrate Giving” gathering on September 18, 2014. (My disclosure ~ I have been a member of the Distribution Committee since 1998 and continue to serve.)
