The Jay County Historical Society has received a grant in the amount of $5,000 to help support this year’s Jay County Heritage Festival. Of this, $3,706 comes from the Clyde E. Geeting Memorial Trust, which provides funding for historical facilities. The remainder will be paid from unrestricted funds held by the Foundation.
This grant is part of $289,118 in grants which were recently awarded to local organizations. Doug Inman, executive director of the Portland Foundation said that the funds would not be possible if not for the countless gifts from Jay County citizens over the last 69 years. These programs help support the Foundation’s mission of enhancing the quality of life for people in Jay County.
The JCHS Board of Directors is truly grateful to the Portland Foundation for this grant, along with all the other support given to JCHS through the years.
