The Boys and Girls Club was one of the organizations that received a PATH General Operations Grant.

The PATH Foundation has granted $1,017,103 in general operations grants to 27 nonprofit organizations serving the communities of Fauquier, Rappahannock and northern Culpeper counties, according to a Friday afternoon press release.

General operations grants are part of PATH Foundation’s annual grant cycle, and they provide funds for direct or indirect costs related to the nonprofits’ activities and operations. 

“The PATH Foundation’s mission is to improve the health and vitality of our community, and empowering local organizations to do their best work is one way we can accomplish our goal,” said Christy Connolly, president and CEO of the PATH Foundation in the release. “General operating funds are vital to any organization, but they can sometimes be difficult to obtain. Our general operations grants alleviate the pressure of securing funding, allowing our local nonprofits to thrive and focus on the important work they do each day.”

Grants were awarded to organizations related to one or more of the PATH Foundation’s four areas of focus: access to care, childhood wellness, mental health and senior services. Awardees were selected on several criteria, including adherence to best practices related to governance, finance, public disclosure and programming principles, as well as their commitment to strategic planning.
