The Jonathan & Shari Fox Family Foundation has announced that the 2017 grant applications are now available online and will be accepted through Oct. 27, 2017. The grants are awarded annually and will be announced near year’s end.
The foundation was established in 2005 by Jonathan and Shari Fox of Fowler. Mrs. Fox is the former Shari Baublits of Las Animas, the daughter of Bill and Diane Baublits. Mr. Fox is Chairman, CEO and president of the Fowler State Bank in Fowler.
The foundation’s interactive website is located at www.foxfamilyfoundation.net. This will not only provide information about the grant process, but also allows the applicant to complete the application online, attaching the completed application and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org. This email address may be used for answering questions, as well. President Jonathan Fox noted, “The board felt this streamlines the application process and provides an easier method 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, 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 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 and Sean A. Fox, with Andrew P. Trainor representing the outlying area communities located in Crowley and Pueblo counties, along with David Johnson of the Denver area, who also serves on the board.
The Foundation looks forward to helping the communities in southeastern Colorado in this small way.
