NonProfits in City of Lake Worth. DON’T DELAY: Begin your grant applications for up $25,000.

Here are just a few of the grantees last year, grants from “Quantum in the Community” that helped nonprofits here in our City:

The Lake Worth community has come together to support a nonprofit, helping the founder, Patrick Livingston, make incredible progress with his vision for Arms of Hope.
     Livingston will be the first to tell anyone that cooking in the soup kitchen last summer was brutal. There was no air conditioning. The dining area was uncomfortable for guests, too, but now things are much different.
     “It’s a huge difference, a huge difference. Night and day from when we sat here last year,” Livingston said.

To learn more about “Quantum in the Community” and to see if you qualify use this link or call 561-832-7497.

Small, grassroots nonprofits here in the City of Lake Worth can receive a share of $750,000 in Palm Beach County. For the past 6 years Quantum Foundation committed $4 million for this project.

Here are the details:

Applicants: must be registered as a 501(c)3; have been working in Palm Beach County for at least six months; have an annual operating budget no higher than $500,000; and must provide basic needs like food, clothing, shelter, utilities and transport to the county’s most vulnerable residents.
