The Community Foundation recently awarded thirty $1,000 grants to nonprofits serving the low-income community in the Greater Huntsville area (Jackson, Limestone, Madison, Marshall, and Morgan Counties). This funding was made available through the Cadence Bank Community Reinvestment Fund and an anonymous donor.

The grants have been awarded to these local Jackson County nonprofits:
• Boys & Girls Club of North Alabama
• Community Action Agency of Northeast Alabama
• Jackson County Drug Court
• Jackson County Family Drug Court aka Jackson County Family Wellness Court

The check presentation was held August 26, 2022 at 10 a.m. at the Garden of Hope, where a check was presented by Ann Kvach to Judge John Graham and the Family Wellness Court, where a check was presented to Judge Don Word and Family Wellness Court Coordinator Erica Kirkland-Weeks.

“The Chamber is appreciative of our partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville and their focus and dedication towards the residents of Jackson County,” said Rick Roden, President/CEO of Mountain Lakes Chamber. “These recipients are making a significant impact within Jackson County and are well deserving of this recognition and grant.”

Melissa Thompson, CEO and President of Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville, commented, “At the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville, we believe that when we invest in our nonprofit community that investment can reap huge dividends. We are honored to support these ‘boots-on-the-grounds’ organizations in Jackson County that are helping the most vulnerable in our community.”
