CFWG Helps Keep Carroll Beautiful

CFWG Helps Keep Carroll Beautiful

Keep Carroll Beautiful works hard to prevent and remove litter from our neighborhoods, parks and roads. You might have seen their signs around the Carrollton Greenbelt.

Keep Carroll Beautiful opened a fund with the Foundation in 2020. Martyna said, “We were very pleased with the advice from the Community Foundation and just how easy it was to set everything up. It’s generating some money for beautification projects of our own so we can continue to give back to the community.”

On Call for Mental Health Emergencies

On Call for Mental Health Emergencies

One of the newest initiatives—the Mobile Crisis Unit—received a grant from the Community Foundation in 2020 to fund all the medical supplies and testing equipment. These allow the staff to admit those in need during calls.
Out of 175 calls, all but one were able to avoid arrest through getting the help they needed immediately and continued support from the Crisis Unit afterward. The Crisis Unit has been a community-wide effort, bringing together stakeholders from the city and counties to make this innovative program become a reality.

More Than A Cemetery Fund

More Than A Cemetery Fund

In 2015, Greg and cemetery committee members looked at ways to better manage this fund. Since moving it to the Community Foundation, it has both grown to support the cemetery, as well as support the community.

“Having the Community Foundation handle our incoming donations and the administrative part saves the organization a lot of work,” said Nicole Worthington, Circles Director. “In the past, I would be tied up for at least two weeks.”
