Stanislaus Community Foundation has recently made four strategic investments totaling more than $100,000 to bolster the well-being and education of young people throughout Oakdale.
Funding for these grants comes from the NOZ Family Fund, which is managed by Sacramento Region Community Foundation to support underserved youth and children in Oakdale. Recognizing Stanislaus Community Foundation’s expertise in the region, Sacramento Region Community Foundation is collaborating with Stanislaus Community Foundation to identify grantees and administer the NOZ fund grants in Oakdale.
“I’d like to thank Sacramento Region Community Foundation for reaching out and partnering with us to support Oakdale’s children,” said Marian Kaanon, CEO of Stanislaus Community Foundation. “These funds not only provided us with an excellent opportunity to assess the health and capacity of the nonprofits working with the area’s young people, but also the independence to invest in the most impactful programs.”
Grants were awarded to the following organizations:
Children’s Crisis Center – $20,000 in general operating support for Oakdale’s Guardian House.
Oakdale Joint Unified School District – $30,000 for Super Summer Camp scholarships.
Cricket’s Hope – $15,000 for Art Restores Kids therapy program at Oakdale Junior High.
