At this morning’s Nevada Kiwanis meeting, Patrick Scully introduced Jennifer Garst, Ph.D. Jennifer is the president of the Story County Community Foundation. Jennifer explained the tax credits an individual receives for donating to the foundation. The foundation also receives about $1 million a year from gaming revenue. The foundation has around $6 million now, which allows it to give $300,000 each and every year for grants. Jennifer explained how any nonprofit or government organization can apply for a grant and shared with the Kiwanians the grants offered this year. More information can be obtained by calling 515-232-9200. Thank you, Patrick and Jennifer, for a very informative program.
