On behalf of the Elks National Foundation, let me congratulate the Coos Bay Elks Lodge on being a 2009 Impact Grant recipient! The competition was fierce again this year. We received 152 grant applications and selected only 46 Lodges to receive an Impact Grant award of up to $10,000.
Your Lodge will receive a 2008-09 grant award of $10,000.00 to support the project: South Coast Food Share Weekend Snack Pack Program-Bunker Hill Elem..
Your Lodge has just joined the ranks of 45 other Lodges that are working to improve the quality of life in their communities. Throughout the grant cycle, our Programs Associate Lesley Greene will be right there with you to lend support and to ensure your project stays on track. Should you have questions beforehand, we are only an email or phone call away.
We applaud you for being part of an illustrious group of Lodges looking to meaningfully and visibly address the needs of communities where Elks live and work. You should expect to receive your official award letter, including any grant contingencies, along with the grant assurances by October 31, 2008.
Again, congratulations! Coos Bay is the only Lodge in Oregon to receive an Impact Grant this year.
