RICE LAKE COMMUNITY HEALTH FOUNDATION -PRESS RELEASE-2016
The Rice Lake Community Health Foundation (RLCHF) is solicitingapplications for matching grant funds. Any non-profit organization that provides health-related services to residents of the greater Rice Lake area is invited to submit a formal written request by August 8, 2016.
The Rice Lake Community Health Foundation (RLCHF), established in 2008, was able to provide $145,000 in matching fund grants to health-related organizations in 2015/2016. Matching funds were distributed to the following organizations in 2015/2016: Benjamin’s House; Barron County Restorative Justice Programs; Birchwood Area Food Pantry; Boys and Girls Club of Barron County; Chetek Food Shelf; Cumberland Area Community Food Pantry; Nature’s Edge Therapy Center; New Directions 2000; Pink Ribbon Advocacy; Rice lake Area Free Clinic; Ruby’s Pantry and Volunteer Services of Barron County.
The grant process for distributions was re-structured in 2011 to make grants more compliant with the Federal tax code, thus enabling RLCHF to contribute additional health care funding to the disadvantaged in the communities it serves. RLCHF funds cannot be used for operating expenses (e.g. salaries, building rental).
The Foundation’s mission is to promote the physical, behavioral and social health of people in the greater Rice Lake area by supporting and partnering with health and wellness organizations. We believe that by helping organizations improve the health of individuals, families, and community systems, we can enhance the quality of life for the community as a whole.
