“Family Support Fund” Initiative News

Zane’s Foundation is proud to report that the funds disbursed for this last funding quarter totaled $2,940.00 for two families that live here in Northeast Ohio.  The “Family Support Funds” Committee started with 3 funding requests and not one of them was completed…..so we went back to the files and pulled the files that were the closest to being ready.  That is how we came up with 2 this quarter!  Both of the families that received funds requested them for therapy services.

A BIG THANK YOU to the “Family Support Funds” Committee!  They will be getting the files for the next funding quarter any day now.  This quarter will have a disbursement of funds towards the end of January, 2015.

Did you know???

Do you know where the Zane’s Foundation Board Members have their monthly Board meetings?

It depends.  Sometimes they have their meetings at the Offices of Anzelc & Associates, Inc. in Stow.  During tax season when their conference room is not available, then they may have their board meetings in the conference room at the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library.   However,  if the meeting is in the evening then the meeting will more than likely be in the Party Room at Beef “O” Brady’s in Stow.  They will also open up early for us so that we can use their Party Room during the day.

Even though Zane’s Foundation, Inc. does not pay rent towards a building of their own we have been lucky to find some very great places to have their meetings.  Thank you Anzelc’s, the SMF Public Library and Beef “O” Brady’s!
