Mutual Ground will be getting some much needed building renovations, thanks to a $9,500 grant from the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley.

Since parts of Mutual Ground’s building date back to the nineteenth century, there is a constant need for building repair and updates. This grant’s projects include redoing the front entryway, replacing the rusted front door and fixing gutters and walls with water issues.

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.
