Hazel Herring Civic Improvment Grant

Award amount: $5,000.  Funds may be awarded to more than one WNF&GA Branch/Division applicant.

Application deadline: May 1

Improving the quality of life in members’ communities through beautification is a cornerstone of WNF&GA.

This grant was established in 1983 through a donation made by Mr. Jack Herring in honor of his wife, Hazel J. Herring. Mrs. Herring served as WNF&GA president from 1982 – 1984. The grant may be used to assist Branches or Divisions implementing their civic beautification projects.

The Hazel Herring grant was originally established as an award for a completed project. Its focus was changed, with Hazel’s approval, to that of a GRANT to be given to a Branch or Division project of “improvement” through civic action or improvement through beautification.

Projects which will be considered include: community gardens, landscaping of historic landmarks or community properties, establishment of playgrounds, open space parks, picnic areas and similar endeavors which will benefit and improve public spaces. It can be part of a continuing large project, but a new phase.

The grant will be given only once per project as applied for on the application.
