on Ligonier Valley Endowment

The Ligonier Valley Endowment's Capitalization Campaign, currently in its 39th year of providing financial help for local nonprofit groups in the Ligonier Valley, recently awarded its second-quarter grants.
The 2014 Endowment Scholars, Phebe Cornell and Jake Nemeth, and 2014 Mellon Scholar, Jiselle Bubin, were recognized during a receptio on May 29.
A recent grant awarded to the Ligonier Township Police Department will be used to purchase a long-range infrared sensing device for Lt. Eric Eslary and his canine officer, Blek. Eslary said the device is “state of the art” and noted that there are none currently available in the area.
To date, the group's general support fund has awarded $2.7 million dollars to more than 135 recipients in the Ligonier Valley.
The group is accepting applications for the third quarter awards.
