SIERRA VISTA — Every year the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona funds Innovation Grants for projects that are in line with the foundation’s mission. These grant proposals must engage innovative ideas that address how to best revolutionize solutions to the organization’s issues that may be affecting the community.
Earlier this year, the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona awarded the Boys & Girls Club of Sierra Vista the Innovative Grant, which allowed the club to purchase a new 15-passenger van for its members. The grant also provided funds for the van to be wrapped in the Boys & Girls Club of Sierra Vista’s logo, as well as van fuel for the year. This grant directly impacts the Club’s sports, fitness and recreation and healthy lifestyles programs, as they strive to promote physical fitness, positive use of leisure time and promote healthy behaviors.
“The Legacy Foundation is proud to support the Boys & Girls Club and assist with the purchase of the van, which will enhance the services provided by the club,” said Margaret Hepburn, CEO of the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona. ”Our children are our future and the work of the Boys & Girls club helps ensure a strong foundation for our youth.”
