ARCH, Hospice headline Spur’s fall grant cycle

Spur Community Foundation has distributed more than $1.8 million this year

By EXPRESS STAFF

The Ketchum-based Spur Community Foundation dispersed $80,000 to five area nonprofits during its fall granting cycle, bringing its distributions over $1.8 million for the year so far, the organization announced on Tuesday.

Spur awarded grants to five of the 14 groups that applied this round. They are:

• $25,000 to ARCH Community Housing Trust to grow the organization.

• $25,000 to Hospice and Palliative Care of the Wood River Valley for general operations.

• $15,000 to Mountain Rides for a cargo trailer for its Safe Routes to School program.

• $10,000 to NAMI Wood River Valley to go toward a coordinator to work with the 5B Suicide Prevention Alliance.

As of Monday, Oct. 18, the foundation had distributed $1,880,912, Spur said in a news release. Of that, $534,412 were “discretionary grants,” meaning they were selected by Spur, and not tied to donor-advised funds.

Spur’s next grant application window closes on Nov. 22. To be eligible, a nonprofit must offer “substantive programs that benefit the local community,” the foundation stated.
