BOOST Initiative
In 2010, in response to the economic recession, the Community Foundation introduced the Building Organizations’ Operational Sustainability Today (BOOST) Initiative to provide operating grants to nonprofits who were experiencing an increased demand for services while incurring budget shortfalls and deficits. Twelve grants were awarded totaling $75,500.
