Avista Foundation Announces Second Quarter Grants

Avista

SPOKANE, Wash. – July 9, 2021: The Avista Foundation has announced the awarding of its second-quarter grants totaling $276,700 to 25 non-profit organizations in Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. The grants are intended to directly benefit youth development and education programming.

“Supporting organizations that provide services to youth and families is an important part of our commitment to investing in our communities,” said Dennis Vermillion, Avista president, and CEO.

“We also want to help broaden educational opportunities—such as support for after-school programs, expanding STEM curriculum, culturally relevant learning experiences, or funding scholarships for post-secondary education and technical training.”

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Spokane County and Lewis Clark Valley each received a grant of $75,000 ($25,000/year) to help with major campus renovations in Lewiston and building a new facility in Spokane.

“Our organization’s number one goal through this project and in our operating model is to serve children who need us most,” stated the Lewis Clark Club CEO Jon Evans. “This is a critical time for our community. Our Boys & Girls Club will become a community-based campus that’s home to multiple youth-serving and non-profit agencies to deepen our collective impact within the Lewis-Clark Valley.”

Additional grants supporting higher education were awarded to Community Colleges of Spokane, the University of Idaho, Eastern Washington University, and Washington State University.
