Harvest Foundation releases 2017 annual report to community

February 1, 2018

The Harvest Foundation, located in Martinsville, Va., has released its 2017 annual report, which summarizes financial and grant highlights from fiscal year 2017.

The report (click here to view) highlights grants approved in 2017, Pick Up the Pace! grants awarded in 2017, and news from the Harvest Youth Board.

In 2017, Harvest awarded nine grants and paid $9.17 million in grant payments. Preliminary numbers have foundation investment totals at $224.95 million by the end of 2017.

“We approached our grant announcements differently this year, showing the community a graphical representation of how we see our work at the foundation: a series of pieces fitting into a puzzle that represents our strategic plan focused on economic development,” said Allyson Rothrock, president of Harvest Foundation. “Not one individual, one group, or one organization has all the pieces, but working together, we can all make our community the very best it can be.”

The Harvest Foundation has two types of grants. Pick Up the Pace! grants are up to $10,000 for short-term projects or start-up initiatives, and general responsive grants are considered once a year in November. To apply for general responsive grants, a statement of need is due to Harvest Foundation by June 1. Pick Up the Pace! grants are available for application at any time throughout the year.

Organizations with projects that benefit youth in Martinsville-Henry County may consider applying for a grant through the Harvest Youth Board. Grant awards are capped at $5,000 and are available for application throughout the year.
