The Community Foundation Awards $32,500 for youth programs in Weld County
The agencies and projects funded in this distribution were:
The Littler Youth Fund, an endowment with the Community Foundation, was established in 1972 by Hubert and Mary Littler for the benefit of youth in Weld County. Since 1986 when the Fund began making quarterly distributions, it has made grants to hundreds of youth programs totaling more than $2.6 million. Based on the changing needs of the community, it has been able to support a variety of youth organizations. From the joy of hearing a professional jazz band to mental health counseling, education and cultural activities to providing healthy snacks, the fund has provided opportunities for children that they may have not had otherwise. The Littler’s generosity has created a lasting legacy that addresses the needs of today and the challenges of tomorrow by providing grants to support programs that benefit the youth of Weld County.
