The Three Rivers Community Foundation this week awarded $190,283 in grants to about 50 nonprofits.
The recipients range from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties to The Chaplaincy and the Mid-Columbia Ballet.
Carrie Green, foundation executive director, said board members tried to focus on groups that “develop the person or community.”
The grant recipients are all doing good work, she said.
Never miss a local story.
