The Monmouth Independence Community Foundation announced that a local donor will match donations up to $10,000 until March 31. The anonymous donor’s matching offer is the first of the kind for the foundation. At the time of this publication, $6,500 in donations have been matched.

According to a city press release, the MICF donated over $50,000 to the Central School District via its Classroom Enrichment Grants. These microgrants are given directly to district educators and clubs to help fund educational ideas that are particularly inventive and engaging but require resources beyond what is already available from the district.

The MICF also supports local organizations and nonprofits, such as the Central Lions Club, Ella Curran Food Bank, the Independence Heritage Museum, and the MI Town Skatepark.

The Monmouth-Independence Community Foundation was established by local residents in 2000 to benefit the people of the greater Monmouth-Independence area.
