Friends of MSCR, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for MSCR programs, awarded MSCR staff with nearly $48,000 grant money. The grant funds will be used to support afterschool, inclusion services, pontoon, camps and other programs. An additional $10,000 will be deposited to the Friends of MSCR Endowment through the Madison Community Foundation.

The grants were presented at the annual Friends of MSCR Board Breakfast. The majority of the funding for these grants is raised at the annual Fore Friends Golf Outing & Online Auction. MSCR Staff appreciate the Friends of MSCR Board’s time, support and generosity.
