KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Kalamazoo Community Foundation says it’s awarded over 4-million dollars in grants in the first quarter of the year to hundreds of local non-profits.

Some are regular recipients. Some of the larger ones are from the Foundation’s unrestricted sources that are applied to the biggest perceived needs in the community.

300-thousand dollars was granted to the Kalamazoo Ready 4’s, a program for pre-schoolers, 272-thousand dollars to Community in Schools for more mentors for high school students, aimed at increasing graduation rates.

105-thousand went to Loaves and Fishes for their food pantry program, 100-thousand to Lakeside for Children, and 40-thousand dollars will help pay for the registration fees for underprivileged young girls who want to be involved in Girls on the Run.

Another 3.1-million dollars was awarded in the form of 295 smaller grants from their 800 donor created restricted funds.
