Carmel, CA, December 22, 2020 — Max’s Helping Paws Foundation has received a Community Impact Grant of $15,000 to help the Foundation continue assisting pets in a health crisis over the next 18 months.
The grant came from the Kathleen and Howard Marks Fund of the Community Foundation for Monterey County. Community Impact Grants address critical issues and opportunities for five primary program areas that advance the Community Foundation’s mission and vision for Monterey County. These grants are based on an analysis of local needs, aspirations, assets and opportunities for achieving strategic results.
“The addition of Chestnut Fund grants has left a gap in funding for our core programs, and this grant will help fill that gap,” said Dayna Klein, co-founder and executive director of Max’s. “This is our first grant from the Community Foundation and we’re honored and excited to receive these much-needed funds to help us on our mission.”
