Giving Circle grants to assist four nonprofit organizations




The Giving Circle announced that it will grant money to four nonprofits focused on homelessness and housing: Bridgeview Housing, the Council for the Homeless, Washington State University Foundation and YWCA Clark County.

• Bridgeview will use its $5,000 grant to purchase a coffee cart for a pilot program involving Vancouver Housing Authority youth.

• The Council for the Homeless’ $5,000 will support released inmates’ housing needs through a partnership with the Clark County Jail Re-entry Program.

• The WSU Foundation will put its $4,311 toward At Home At School, a summer education program for Clark County students and their families who are homeless or otherwise in transition. The four-week program managed by Washington State University Vancouver includes arts-integrated science, technology, environmental science and math instruction.

• YWCA Clark County’s $3,350 grant will go toward emergency funding for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault who are in unstable housing situations.
