CLINTON — The Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque announced this week that more than $10,000 has been awarded to three Clinton nonprofits.

The awards were provided through two CFGD grant programs, Community Impact and Women's Giving Circle.

The Felix Adler Children's Discovery Center and the Council of Social Agencies/Getting Ahead program were the recipients in the Community Impact funding mechanism. The YWCA's rapid rehousing project received $3,709 through the Women's Giving Circle program.

The Discovery Center received $2,300 to assist with board and director development training, while the $4,025 awarded to the Council of Social Agencies will be used toward the Clinton Getting Ahead training expansion.

Now in its 14th year, the Community Impact Grant program is funded by gifts to the foundation’s Community Impact Fund. The goal of the grant program is to improve policies and practices affecting the greater Dubuque community and to have the greatest possible impact.

The Women’s Giving Circle, organized through the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, brings together women from all walks of life to learn about community needs and to build the Circle’s endowment fund. Payouts from this fund provide a source of grant funding to support local nonprofits serving women and children in the community.
