Driving the news: Anderson Children’s Foundation (ACF) recently announced its annual grant recipients. More than $1.4 million was awarded for the coming year to 100 different organizations.

  • Among those receiving grant funding in Palm Springs were the city’s Parks & Recreation Department, the Desert Art Center Middle School Art Program, Palm Canyon Theatre, Nickerson-Rossi Dance Company, the Palm Springs Opera Guild, and Well in the Desert.
