MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Central Alabama Community Foundation awarded organizations thousands of dollars in grants, all in the name of education.
CACF awarded nearly $85,000 to 13 River Region non-profits. Each non-profit supports education initiatives in Montgomery, Elmore and Autauga counties, helping everyone from toddlers to adults.
"Everything from equipping mothers of young children with what to teach them prior to going to school, to helping adults, either becoming educated by reading or to be able to get jobs," said CACF President Burton Crenshaw.
The foundation distributes more than $5 million through grants and scholarships each year.
