The Mountain Grove Area Community Foundation met their goal of raising $30,300 as part of the Harry Cooper Supply Company Campaign for the Ozarks. This money was matched dollar-for-dollar through the Cooper Campaign. Dr. Tom Prater, Community Foundation of the Ozarks board of directors chair-elect, presented a check for $30,300 in the matching funds on Wednesday, November 12, 2008.
The Harry Cooper Supply Company Campaign for the Ozarks is a dollar for dollar challenge grant in partnership with the Community Foundation of the Ozarks that is part of an overall regional effort to enhance community grantmaking endowments, establish administrative/operations endowments, and promote appropriate and best practices by community foundation board of directors. This initiative is made possible through the generosity of the Harry Cooper Supply Company.
