Community 500 Invitation Met With Impressive Response

April 6, 2018

“What would YOU do with $500 to improve your community?”

That was the question asked by Middle Border Forward’s Community 500 Impact Project Sponsorship initiative.  The goal was to challenge citizens of the Middle Border region to consider how small, creative actions can make a big change where we live and work.  And, that challenge was accepted!

The first round of applications resulted in 66 submissions.  The ideas ranged from bird houses to field trips to youth activities and beyond.  Nearly every corner of the region was represented, as well.

MBF will announce the first six Community 500 projects on Friday, March 17 at 1:00pmvia Facebook Live.  Awarded projects must be completed by June 30.

A second round of applications will be accepted in July and August, with projects completed by the end of the year.
