SELBYVILLE – The Carl M. Freeman Foundation awards $105,000 in grants to 13 Sussex County nonprofit organizations and schools through the FACES (Freeman Foundation Assists Communities with Extra Support) Grant Program. The FACES program supports small organizations located in Sussex County that provide grassroots services to the community.

The FACES program utilizes an advisory board composed entirely of citizens who live or work in Sussex County. Advisory board members include community leaders, business professionals, students, and nonprofit ambassadors. Advisory board members evaluate the applications and recommend where funding should be awarded based on the needs and priorities of the community.

The 13 organizations receiving grants are Clothing Our Kids, Family Promise of Southern Delaware, Howard T. Ennis School (received two grants), IRSD Early Learning Center, Kim and Evans Family Foundation, Milford Advocacy for the Homeless, New Hope Recreation and Development Center, Phillip C. Showell Elementary School, Read Aloud Delaware, Redemption City Delaware, SNAC Garden Foundation, and Sussex Community Crisis Housing Services.

FACES Sussex provides a total award fund of $105,000, which allows grantees to receive $10,000, $5,000, or $2,500 grants. The projects these grants will fund serve a wide array of needs in Sussex County including support at-risk youth, homelessness, and local schools.

“We are continuously humbled by the great work being done for our community by local small nonprofits,” Michelle Freeman, chairman and president of the Carl M. Freeman Foundation, said. “These organizations and schools provide direct support to our neighbors and students and we are thrilled to support their missions.”
