We are thrilled at the boost we have received recently from the Sioux Center Generations, Sioux County Foundation, United Way of LeMars and Lyon County Riverboat Foundation. To see how we are utilizing each of those grants, just click on the foundation name.
While grants are a wonderful benefit to our ministry, they do come with strings attached. Grantors generally prefer to fund "projects"--very few grants are available for general operating expenses and competition for that kind of funding is intense. Grant makers also require us to prove viability outside of the confines of the grant.
At CFE, we practice what we preach and keep our overhead as low as possible. But we have not yet landed a grant that helps us cover expenses like salary for our wonderful, caring staff and daily operating needs. This means that we are relying heavily on our donors to keep us going. To make an ongoing impact and provide a consistent financial foundation, we are looking for 50 new monthly donors by December to meet the needs of ministry! Would you be one of those 50? Please prayerfully consider becoming a CFE Champion by committing to a monthly donation.
