West End Health Foundation creates grant to help non-profits

ISHPEMING — The West End Health Foundation has created a $30,000 mini grant program in response to the COVID19 pandemic.

The grants, ranging from $100 to $1500, will be given to non–profit organizations that provide health and wellness related services to residents that live on the west end of Marquette County. Other organizations, such as United Way of Marquette County, have also created grants in order to help non–profits get through the COVID19 situation.

“When things started to come up about COVID19, and things seemed to get more serious, we thought how can we be more proactive then to use our proactive grant fund,” said Pam Christensen, Foundation Manager at the West End Health Foundation. “We budgeted $30,000 to respond to the pandemic. This does not take away the funds for our spring grant cycle; which was for facilities, capital improvement, and equipment.”
