Cabool Community Foundation awards Coover Regional Recovery Grants

April 16, 2021 — The Cabool Community Foundation has awarded total grants of $10,000 to six nonprofit agencies for recovery needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The grants are made possible by the Louis L. and Julia Dorothy Coover Charitable Foundation, managed by Commerce Trust Company in partnership with the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. The Cabool Community Foundation is one of 30 CFO affiliate foundations to receive Coover grant funding this year and chose to use its award to hold a community recovery grant round for eligible nonprofits.

The CCF awarded its Coover Regional Recovery Grants to:

  • Cabool R-IV School District: $2,000 for COVID-19 precautions such as sanitizing dispensers and disinfectants
  • Cabool Second Baptist Daycare: $2,000 for COVID-19 recovery support
  • Cabool Senior Center: $1,000 for an outdoor picnic table and raised beds
  • Missouri Ozarks Community Health: $2,000 for food boxes to feed families
  • Ozarks Family YMCA: $1,000 for COVID-19 precautions for sporting events
  • SeniorAge Area Agency on Aging: $2,000 for home-delivered frozen meals for seniors

“One of the benefits of the CFO’s affiliate network is the ability of local leaders to make decisions in the best interests of their own communities,” said Jill Reynolds, senior vice president at Commerce Trust. “Using leaders across rural Missouri to award Coover Charitable Foundation grant dollars has contributed to this partnership’s success in distributing more than $7 million since 2002.”
