Town of Fountain Hills and Republic Services Provide Grant Awardees

Republic Services and the Town of Fountain Hills are pleased to announce the award of $10,000 to two local non-profits.  The Republic Services Community Grant Program was established to support Fountain Hills based nonprofit organizations’ programs and projects.  The town administered program will provide funding to the following organizations:

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale – Fountain Hills (McKee Branch) - $5,000

Fountain Hills Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition - $5,000

The recipients have been invited to the March 7, 2023, Town Council Meeting to be recognized by Republic Services and the Town.

With a number of competitive and impactful applications, the grant committee had the difficult task of scoring. However, the grant committee selected the 2 awardees from the 18 submitted applications. 

For an application to be considered it had to benefit the community in one of six areas:  stewardship of the environment; enhance the natural beauty of the town; provide public enjoyment; support healthy lifestyles; support human services, and/or provide educational opportunities.  

The criteria those applications were further judged upon included the overall impact of the project/program with regard to how it enriches the community at large and how it addresses human and environmental challenges and/or opportunities.  

Thank you to all of our community non-profit organizations that applied. We look forward to continuing this program next year with support from Republic Services.
