IFC Grants and Giving Team 2022 Report
In 2022 Interfaith Council was able to give a total of $6,750 in grants to the following:
Community Chaplaincy of Larimer County (a group of Interfaith spiritual caregivers that help respond to our community in a disaster or in times of need)
Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity (contributing to their “Faith Build”, where many faith communities work together to build a Habitat home)
Fort Love Refugee Resources (a start-up organization seeking to address the needs of refugees and resettlement in our area)
This grant money came from member faith communities and non-profit organizations, as well as individual members of IFC. Putting our money together, we were able to get $6,750 out into the community! This money, through the above organizations, will help change lives and benefit our community of Fort Collins.
In 2022 the IFC Grants Team members were Alex Statham-Lardner, David Spencer, Diane Cohn, Dianne Tjalkens, Joan Carter, Joyce Trujillo, and Kay Bunch. Thanks, team, for your care and collaboration!
IFC Grants show once again that we truly are better together!
