Rapids Radio and partner, Timberlake Lodge, through their “Year of Giving” program are donating $2500 every month of 2022 to an area nonprofit.  Five local nonprofits are drawn randomly at the beginning of each month and then one winner is randomly selected from those five at the end of the month. The “Year of Giving” April recipient was the Itasca Area Cancer Crisis Fund.

 

The Itasca Area Cancer Crisis Fund supports crisis needs of individuals and families dealing with cancer. Since the IACCF began in 2010, it has paid out $412,857 in grants to 383 individuals or families fighting cancer. This $5,000 will allow IACCF to help more people.

 

The Itasca Area Cancer Crisis Fund is managed through the Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation. If you or a family member are in need of cancer crisis funding, you can apply online through the Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation website, www.gracf.org.  Click on Itasca Area Cancer Crisis Fund on the Apply for a Grant page and fill out a simple application.  If you would like to donate to IACCF, you can drop off or send a check to Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation, 350 NW 1st Avenue, Suite E, Grand Rapids, MN 55744, or donate online at www.gracf.org/donate, and select Itasca Area Cancer Crisis Fund.

 

The Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation has been connecting donors’ charitable intentions to community needs for over 25 years to make our Greater Itasca Area – and the world – a better place to work and live.
