Gwinn nonprofits receive grants

GWINN, MI— The Gwinn Area Community Fund has awarded grants to several area nonprofits during its fall grant cycle.

The Community Foundation of Marquette County says the Gwinn fund received a $25,000 contribution from a private donor.

The Gwinn affiliate fund board reviewed 20 applications. It awarded money to the Gwinn Saint Vincent DePaul facility, the Gwinn Seed Library, Forsyth Senior Center, Sawyer Community Enrichment Programs, and the Skandia Township Recreational Facilities.

The goal of this grant cycle was to support start-up and existing programs that enhance the quality of life in Ewing, Forsyth, Sands, Skandia, Turin, Wells, and West Branch townships.
