New Fund Established in the Morgan County Family of Funds
Morgan County Youth Development Fund
Will Provide Funding for Children in Morgan County
Young people in Morgan County should look forward to new and exciting experiences in the arts, education, and recreation. The newly established Morgan County Youth Development Fund will support cultural, artistic, recreational, and educational opportunities for the young people of Morgan County by providingmini-grants.
“We’re excited to welcome the Morgan County Youth Development Fund to our family of funds,” said John Wells, Morgan Foundation President. “It is so important to invest in the youth of Morgan County, and we welcome this wonderful opportunity for our children.”
The fund was established by the Fairgrounds Junior Golf League (JGL), who for years reached out to engage young people between 8 and 16 years of age in a variety of activities, including the development of leadership skills as well as golf and other sports. Recognizing the need for varied and broader opportunities for the county’s young people, the group elected to establish a fund within the Morgan Foundation Family of Funds.
“We’re really looking forward to our partnership with the Morgan Foundation and the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio,” said Carlos Keyes, who served as president for the Junior Golf League. “We believe strongly in investing in the youth in our communities, and are looking forward to the opportunities this fund will make possible for our kids.”
