Loveland Generations, a committee-advised fund of the Community Foundation of
Northern Colorado, announces it awarded a combined $18,300 in grants to Harrington Arts Alliance, Give Next, The Matthews House, VITA Loveland, Inc., and Thompson Valley Preschool, Inc.
“One of the goals of Loveland Generations is to introduce donor-members to nonprofits that serve Loveland and surrounding communities,” said grant chairman Jim Whitenight. “We look to invest in organizations that directly benefit the community, though we don’t fund salaries or capital projects. We look at the services nonprofits provide.”
The Harrington Arts Alliance is a nonprofit that provides acting, singing, and theatre in a teamwork setting and reaches out to at-risk youth. Its goal is to enhance the well-being of children and young adults in Loveland by helping them build confidence and pride through positive experiences. It will use its grant to fund scholarships for after-school and/or summer camp programs
Thompson Valley Preschool builds the foundation for a child’s school success and lifelong learning by offering affordable access to quality educational experiences. The preschool will use the grant to fund its storybook adventure program and purchase books for approximately 75 children while increasing the support for parents to assist with their child’s education.
