The Livingston County Community Foundation is pleased to present the seecond payment of a grant of $20,000 to the Cultural Corner Art Guild and Gallery for the purpose of renovating their building at 424 Locust. The grant was awarded in March of 2016 with $10,000 paid at the time and the $10,000 balance to be paid this year and was a portion of the total budget for the project which was estimated at $650,000. The foundation is proud to have been part of the project. The Art Guild has done an excellent job of remodeling the location to fullfill their dream of erecting a facility to further the arts in Chillicothe. They should be praised for setting a goal and having the fortitude to see it through to fruition. The grant funds will come from the Mildred Bradbury Permanent Endowment account administered by the foundation. The Livingston County Community Foundation was organized in 1998 as a recomendation of the Chillicothe Chamber of Commerce to set up a permanent endowment which would grant funds to other Livingston County non-profits to fullfilll their objectives. The major areas of interest for the foundation are Economic Development, Community & Rurral Development, Education, Community Health and Welfare. Youth and Arts and Humanities. Since it was organized the group has made over 80 grants totalling $500,000 all benefiting non-profits in Livingston County.
