$10,000 “12 Days” Grant Awarded to Dubois County Humane Society

Dubois County (From Release) – The Dubois County Humane Society is the recipient of the Dubois County Community Foundation’s $10,000 12 Days of Giving grant voted on by the general public.

This grant is the culmination of 12 Days of Giving, a granting blitz that kicked off on December 1 and concluded Friday with the public taking part in the voting process on the Community Foundation’s Facebook page.

“The Humane Society was able to adopt over 600 animals this year which is a record for our organization and subsequently increased our vet costs,” said Andrea Hedinger Gramelspacher, Dubois County Humane Society President. “This grant will offset all of our vet care needs which we must raise 100% on a local level,” Hedinger Gramelspacher said.

Leading up to the $10,000 grant, 12 organizations received a $1,000 grant. These organizations were then eligible for a public vote that took place on Facebook yesterday. Over 1,725 votes were received on the Community Foundation’s Facebook page. The Humane Society received the most votes (892).

The 12 nonprofits who received $1,000 grants were:

  • Camp CARE
  • Celestine Community Club
  • Community CHEW
  • Dubois County CASA
  • Dubois County Humane Society
  • Girls on the Run
  • Memorial Hospital HOPE Garden
  • Southern Indiana Leathernecks Detachment
  • Southern Indiana Education Center
  • St. Patrick’s Celebration
  • St. Vincent DePaul
  • Survivors of Suicide

A total of $22,000 was granted to local charities through the 12 Days of Giving initiative. This year’s 12 grant recipients were chosen by last year’s grant recipients with the goal of “paying it forward”.

“The 12 Days of Giving initiative brings recognition to the good work our nonprofits do in our community,” said Clayton Boyles, Community Foundation Executive Director. “This initiative, through some friendly competition in our community, showcases the impactful work of these organizations and provides them with grant dollars to further those missions,” Boyles said.

“It was humbling to see former adopters, supporters and donors step up and vote for us yesterday. A big thank you to the Dubois County Community Foundation for the continued support of the Dubois County Humane Society today and throughout the years,” Hedinger Gramelspacher said.

$10,000 GRANT – The Dubois County Humane Society was voted recipient of a $10,000 grant from the Dubois County Community Foundation Wednesday, capping off the Foundation’s “12 Days of Giving” program.
