Our job at the community Foundation is to help them build capacity, prepare for a strong future, and connect them to resources for important initiatives. We do this through grants. training, and most importantly, providing a place to help their money grow through agency funds,

Funds can be used to purchase supplies, supplemental teaching material, or secure the services of an outside artist.  Some exclusions apply.

Trinka Davis

This grant provides funds for direct services to veterans in Carroll County. Ms. Davis’ passion and drive made her a pillar in the community. After her passing, she is still helping neighbors in her community with a fund that has become an important part of CFWG. TDRF was established in 2009 to both honor the life work of Ms. Davis and provide a permanent fund to assist veterans and their families.
