2018 program planning is underway!
We look forward to sharing our programming plans. In the meantime, we encourage you to share with us your thoughts on activities or workshops that you'd be interested in having the Livestock Foundation facilitate and host in 2018. Call or email Sonia at 914-720-1020 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
SHARE YOUR BOVINA HISTORY
Livestock Foundation is working with our local historian, Ray LaFever, to create an exhibit in the Bovina Valley Creamery's viewing room, which is expected to open to the public later this year. Our goal is to tell the historic and present day stories of dairy farming in our region and feature equipment and processes used in the Creamery before it closed in 1973.
Do you have a story or photo to share? Would you like to donate an artifact for display? Tell us about it! Call or email Sonia at 914-720-1020 or email@example.com.
2018 mini-Grant Program
Livestock Foundation will once again dedicate a limited amount of funding to grant out to the community in 2018. The funding will be awarded to projects that enable the economic viability and historic preservation of Bovina.
Applications will be due on March 1. Awards will be announced by April 1.
Who is eligible? Projects that support the Livestock Foundation's mission while improving Bovina's community and assets are eligible.
What kinds of projects will be funded?
- Due to limited funding, we will grant up to $1,000 in mini-grants in 2018. There is a minimum request of $100 and a maximum request of $600. Maybe you or your organization could use a couple hundred for paint or a new sign, or maybe you'd like to pay a speaker for a community event or print flyers to promote your organization. This would be a good use of these funds.
- We DO NOT fund salaries, rent/mortgage or utilities.
- Preference will be given to beautification projects designed to enhance our Main Street, as well as to collaborative projects.
