Funds to Benefit Stillwater Available
The Stillwater Town Board is proud to announce the availability of public grant money for some worthy recipients seeking to bring positive change to the health, safety, and welfare of our residents.
Under the direction of the Stillwater Town Board, and in partnership with Global Foundries as part of a development agreement associated with the progress of Fab 8, a foundation was formed. During the past year as the now known ‘Global Foundries-Town of Stillwater Foundation Inc.’ was forming as a not-for-profit corporation, substantial deposits from Global Foundries were accepted. A portion of these funds are now available. Organizations with programs and projects that provide tangible benefits of a public nature to diverse groups located within the Town of Stillwater including, not-for-profit corporations, charitable organizations, community arts and theater groups, community education projects, and sports and recreation activities are eligible to apply.
Grant applications are available in a variety of key locations in town. Printed copies may be obtained at the Stillwater Town Hall, Stillwater Area Community Center, Stillwater Free Library, or any of the three offices of the principals within the Stillwater Central School District. The application can be downloaded in PDF format from the Global Foundries website or the Town of Stillwater website: StillwaterNY.org.
The inaugural grant session begins now, with submissions accepted through the month of February 2013. The Stillwater Town Board will announce grant awards in the spring of 2013. For further information please contact the Town of Stillwater Supervisor Ed Kinowski at his office in Town Hall.
