LTEP Receives EWVCF Grant
The Land Trust of the Eastern Panhandle (LTEP) is pleased to announce it has received an unsolicited $200.00 grant from the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation’s Owen Family Fund to support LTEP General Fund/Operations.
Grant Smith, LTEP President, “The foundation of the LTEP is based on volunteers and funds to acquire, monitor and defend conservation easements, which in turn conserve land, water and open space – forever. This generous donation goes directly to achieving that important goal”.
Bonnie Stubblefield, LTEP Vice President, “This grant is an honor to receive. It demonstrates not only the trust the Owen Family has in our mission, but it also reminds us the strength of the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation, and how the variety of funds it manages continue to be reinvested in the community’s health – for people and their environment. For that we are forever grateful”.
The Community Foundation was established in 1995 and awards nearly $1 million in grants and scholarships annually. With 250 endowed funds and assets of just over $30 million, EWVCF is one of the largest grantmaking organizations serving the Eastern Panhandle.
The Foundation is located at the historic Caperton Train Station at 229 East Martin Street, Suite 4, Martinsburg, WV 25401. For more information, visit the website www.EWVCF.org or contact EWVCF Executive Director Michael Whalton at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 304-264-0353.
