Slusher Foundation grants $100K to Stone, Taney nonprofits

Posted online
The Roy W. Slusher Foundation this morning presented $100,000 in grants to 12 nonprofits in Stone and Taney counties.

The grants, presented at a news conference in the Keeter Center at the College of the Ozarks, will aid Ozarks Food Harvest member food pantries and other area feeding sites, according to a news release from the Springfield-based food bank.

The grant recipients are:
  • the Branson, Forsyth and Reeds Spring units of the Boys & Girls Club of the Ozarks;
  • Christian Action Ministries of Branson and Forsyth;
  • Christian Associates of Table Rock Lake;
  • Church Army Branson;
  • Gift of Hope;
  • Jesus Was Homeless;
  • Lives Under Construction Boys Ranch;
  • North Stone County Food Pantry; and
  • Our Lady of the Cove Catholic Church.
Ozarks Food Harvest spokeswoman Lindsey Neddenriep said in an e-mail this morning that the breakdown in funding would be announced next week.

The funding would help the nonprofits feed people in need in Branson and the surrounding communities.

In the same month last year, the Slusher Foundation distributed nearly $60,000 to six Ozarks Food Harvest member agencies in and around Taney and Stone counties, including Christian Action Ministries and Christian Associates of Table Rock Lake, the release said.

In November, the Slusher Foundation was named Foundation of the Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Ozarks Region Chapter, after being nominated by Ozarks Food Harvest. According to Springfield Business Journal archives, the Slusher Foundation has supported the Springfield food bank for more than 15 years.
