Lowry Foundation Announces 2015 Grant Recipients
13th anniversary of the Lowry Foundation's Grant Program.
The Lowry Foundation is pleased to announce that the 2015 Foundation Grant recipients have been awarded. The intent of the Community Grant Program is to redirect funds into the community for projects that will enrich life in Lowry. These programs clearly demonstrate how they serve the Lowry Community through programs of artistic, cultural, educational, historic, recreational and scientific value. They distinctly promote volunteer and community involvement as well as Lowry community assets.
The Lowry Foundation would like to thank the Lowry Community Master Association for their generous contributions to the Grant Program.
