The Harvest Foundation Board of Directors awarded 13 grants totaling $22.3 million at its Thursday, Nov. 15 meeting.

“Working with our grantees throughout the year and seeing the amazing results from their efforts have been extraordinary,” said Allyson Rothrock, president of The Harvest Foundation. “The projects approved by The Harvest Foundation Board of Directors vary from education, workforce training and credentialing support to health care and community asset building. Each year, we strive to discover and cultivate exceptional programs that benefit all citizens in Martinsville-Henry County.” 

This year, The Harvest Foundation “Grants for Growth” tree will tell the story of how the foundation’s latest grant awards interconnect and work to elevate Martinsville-Henry County and its citizenry. Each announced grant takes the shape of a leaf on the tree that represents our community and the hardworking, capable people that make it a wonderful place to live and support a family.
