Suicide Prevention Services thanks the Community Foundation for its grant of $5,468

Suicide Prevention Services of America thanks the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley for its grant of $5,468.

The money was used to increase lighting on the outside of the building, updating the exterior ADA ramp, to update some electrical work, and to refinish the floor in the hotline room.  All of the updates were to increase hotline volunteer safety and comfort.  SPS has a hotline and is also part of the National 1-800-273-TALK line.

“The Community Foundation has been a partner with us for close to 20 years“, said SPS Executive Director, Stephanie Weber.  The staff, board, and volunteers are grateful for their ongoing support.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

[Renewing Scholarship Recipient] Graduate of Hinkley-Big Rock High School

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.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.
