Speaking on behalf of the ATCCF Independent Advisory Committee, volunteer Chairperson, Joan Taylor, noted: “With snow flying and the holiday spirit of giving in the air, our annual grant award ceremony was particularly poignant this year. Representatives of the various nonprofits braved the weather to attend the event and share their plans for the grants they were receiving. The unwavering commitment and dedication of these organizations to charitable missions that improve our community was both inspirational and humbling.  Equally inspiring is our caring community, which is the reason these organizations have a strong Community Fund to look to for funding. We are forever grateful for the tremendous generosity of individual donors and businesses in response to our 2013 October Autumn of Giving Match Campaign, which allowed us to extend our Lend-A-Hand Grant reach to address the requests of all 2013 applicants. Thank you for your belief in and support of our mission:  to foster and perpetuate the local philanthropy that is so integral to the strength of our community. Your generosity is making a difference for all of us.”
