Welcome to Connections!

I am delighted to introduce the Trust's most recent grant awardees.

This second round of 2007 grant awards represents every area of the Trust's mission with grants ranging from $10,000 to $750,000. As you will see from the attached listing, some grants will provide operating support of less established organizations, some will support programmatic activities and some respond to building and equipment needs. Fifteen of the 49 organizations are first time Trust grant recipients. All are important, vital and speak to the Trust's interests in helping people in need, protecting animals and nature and enriching community life.

The Trustees were pleased to host receptions to bring representatives of our grantee organizations together on July 12 in Phoenix and July 24 in Indianapolis to celebrate their work and present the grant checks. As is the Trust's tradition, check presentations take place at previous Trust grantee locations. We extend a special thanks to the Heard Museum in Phoenix and Fay Biccard Glick Neighborhood Center at Crooked Creek in Indianapolis for making their facilities available for these recent events.

Since the Trust began making grants in 1998, it has awarded more than $135 million to 696 different nonprofit organizations. If you would like further information about how to apply for a Trust grant or would like to learn more about the Trust, please visit our web site at ninapulliamtrust.org.

Congratulations again to our newest round of grantees.

As always, we welcome your comments and ideas for Connections.
