York Children's Foundation applications for grants due

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Fox & Weeks reminds Coastal Empire philanthropic organizations that serve children's needs to submit an application to be considered for a York Children's Foundation grant.

The York Children's Foundation, affiliated with Mathews International Corporation, is dedicated to supporting non-profit organizations that serve children and children's causes. Each time a family buys a casket at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, part of the cost is donated to York's Children's Foundation in the name of the deceased.

Fox & Weeks is the only funeral home in Savannah actively participating in the foundation program and has awarded grants to Savannah/Chatham Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter.

York Children's Foundation grants are awarded quarterly, and Coastal Empire philanthropic organizations may apply once per quarter.

The next deadline for submissions is Jan. 30.

Children's charities can call 912.352.7200 to learn more about the York Children's Foundation, or go to the Resources page atwww.foxandweeks.com to review the application and guidelines.
