Cameron Foundation approves $250,000 implementation grant to FOLAR for park and trail development

Building on its earlier proactive investment in Friends of the Lower Appomattox River (FOLAR) for a master planning process, The Cameron Foundation’s Board of Directors has approved its first implementation grant to the organization to improve a key section of the Appomattox River Trail.

FOLAR also is able to leverage $50,000 of the Cameron award as matching dollars towards a $100,000 challenge grant it recently secured from the Mary Morton Parsons Foundation, headquartered in Richmond. The Parsons grant will only be realized if FOLAR raises the full match by May 2019. The nonprofit is more than half way to achieving that goal.
