Multiple Palm Springs-based organizations were the recipients of grant money awarded last week by an organization focused on enhancing the lives of children in the Coachella Valley.
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.
Big Picture: ACF was founded in 1970 and initially sponsored special programs in the Palm Springs Unified School District. Over the years, it expanded to support diverse nonprofit organizations throughout the valley.
- From 1993 to 2022, ACF has awarded more than $18.5 million to 1,263 projects.
