. . .and we know that some of you have, please accept our apologies. We have been having some pretty complicated voice mail problems on our end that are not yet fixed (but we’re told they will be fixed by Tuesday morning October the 4th). Probably the best way to reach us is through email (firstname.lastname@example.org). . .though be warned that one person had trouble going that route as well! Ah technology. . .
All members of the Mt. Pleasant Fund are invited to the annual meeting coming up on October 22nd. If you have not yet received notice of this meeting (with your proxy enclosed), please let us know!
After a typically long and difficult process, the Mt. Pleasant Fund’s Board of Directors recently made its funding decisions for the upcoming fiscal year. The following organizations will be receiving (or have already received) checks from the Fund:
Bridgeway of Lakewood, Colorado is receiving a grant for the sixth consecutive year. Bridgeway is a group home providing support for teen mothers and their children.
Canones Early Childhood Center in Canones, New Mexico received a grant from the Fund in 2007, but as the Fund’s guidelines changed, the Center no longer fit within our specific funding criteria. This year with the shift to considering only those agencies recommended to the board by the membership, Canones was once again eligible (given that one of our members asked that we invite a Letter of Intent). Canones Early Childhood Center provides services to pre-elementary school aged kids in rural northern New Mexico.
The CARE Center of Holyoke, Massachusetts is a school dedicated to supporting teen mothers and their children. This is our 7th year of supporting The CARE Center (our 6th consecutive year).
This is our third consecutive year of supporting Hope House of Arvada, Colorado. Hope House of Colorado is a group home and resource center for teen-aged moms and their children.
