On April 14, 2016 the City of Wilsonville’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board awarded grants to support community programs with funding from the City’s Opportunity Grant program. In all, three different local organizations were awarded $15,000 in grants:
• Jr. Scoop (Wood Middle School): $5,000• Relay for Life of Wilsonville: $5,000• Wilsonville Farmers Market: $5,000
The Opportunity Grant program is funded by the City’s general fund to assist local individuals and organizations that further educational or artistic opportunities; encourage and foster diversity; foster advances in education, art or community leadership; or involve youth or elderly population in community activities. A total of $25,000 is made available each year, with deadlines in October and March.
