The Jonathan and Shari Fox Family Foundation has announced that the 2016 grant applications are now available online and will be accepted through Oct. 28, 2016. The grants are awarded annually and will be announced around the end of the year.

The interactive website is located at www.foxfamilyfoundation.net. This not only provides information about the grant process, but also allows the applicant to complete the application online, attaching the completed application and emailing it to foxfamilyfoundation@foxfamilyfoundation.net. This email address may be used for answering questions, as well. President Jonathan Fox noted, “This streamlines the application process and provides a convenient method in which to access additional information about the foundation.” Applicants may still receive an application by calling (719) 263-4651 and leaving a voicemail with the organization’s name, full address, fax or email address contact name and phone number.

For this year’s grants, the foundation will be distributing a total of $12,000. The individual grants will typically range in amounts from $500 to $1,000 each.

The grants are awarded with preference for the Fowler area and southeastern Colorado.

Any nonprofit organizations whether or not they are designated as a 501(c)3 entity are eligible to apply.

The grant awards will be announced in December with checks available generally before end of the year. The local area members of the board of directors are Jonathan and Shari Fox, Dr. Richard T. Leone, Sean A. Fox, with Andrew P. Trainor representing the outlying area communities located in Crowley and Pueblo counties, as well as David Johnson of the Denver area, who also serves on the board.

The foundation looks forward to helping Fowler and outlying areas in this small way.
