The 2020 Grant Application is not available.
The members of the Forestville Community Fund (FCF) and its governing board; the Forestville Planning Association, are compelled to announce some necessary disaster related adjustments to our grant campaign, which we have implemented as a result of the COVID-19 emergency.
Our annual deadline for the FCF community grants of June 12, 2020, has been suspended and postponed indefinitely this year. We voted to address some urgent community needs that will support the greatest number of Forestville community members and those most in need among us. With that in mind we will hold the current applications received in abeyance and review those again as we reopen the submittal timeline.
Due to what we perceive as the most urgent needs, we have voted to grant $5000 to the Forestville United Methodist Church Food Closet, as their demand has already increased over 60%. We also will be granting $5000 to the Forestville Youth Park Development Fund, due to all the services and happiness it provides to so many. The Youth Park had to cancel the parade and BBQ primary fundraiser, causing a significant setback to this important community facility.
We appreciate your understanding and patience at this challenging time for everyone. We hope to be able to use another $5000 to meet the needs of our community applicants as we all move back to safely returning to life in our wonderful Forestville Community.
