The Masonic Foundation of Utah recently awarded a $1,000 grant to the Youth Garden Project. This grant continues the long-standing partnership between the Youth Garden Project and The Masonic Foundation of Utah, YGP Director Delite Primus said in a news release.

The Masonic Foundation of Utah partners with nonprofit organizations throughout the state of Utah and offers funding for specific programming needs within qualifying organizations, according to the news release.

The foundation, which has been providing help to nonprofit organizations since 1929, is the charitable arm of the Masons’ Grand Lodge. The foundation distributes funds twice annually, awarding scholarships in July and grants to qualifying organizations in October. Each year, the foundation awards approximately $250,000 in scholarships and grants to individuals and organizations in Utah, according to the news release.

“The Masonic Foundation of Utah has been very generous in supporting organizations throughout Utah and we are grateful for the investment they make in the Moab community through their support of the Youth Garden Project,” she said.

The Youth Garden Project provides programs for local young people ages 6 to 18 and hosts events for all ages on YGP’s 1.5-acre garden setting and also at other venues throughout the community. YGP’s programs are funded through donations from individuals, businesses and foundations, Primus said in the news release. For more information, visit the YGP website at www.youthgardenproject.org.
