Grants Awarded to Partner Agencies


The Benzie County Community Chest Board of Directors determine the types of grants that are made to agencies working in Benzie County. They take into account the direct services that supply direct care needs such as food, heat, shelter, etc. A large percentage of available funds are spent for these basic needs. The board also considers services that provide quality of life needs, direct and indirect.
