HHS Region 10:
Benjamin Phillips moved to Port Angeles in 1913 and opened the Port Angeles Trust & Savings Co. the following year, which later became First National Bank. In addition to being a successful banker, Phillips was a classical music lover, a dedicated community volunteer, and a long-time member of the library board. Following the death of Phillips’ second wife, the fund was established to benefit residents of Clallam County. To that end, the fund supports a broad range of community-based organizations serving Clallam County.
Grants are awarded annually to a broad range of charitable organizations serving Clallam County. Grants are predominately made for one year, with no implied renewal funding. However, a two-year grant will be considered if a case is made for why funding is required for a longer period. An example of this exception is a planning or capacity-building process occurring over a two-year period of time.
Before applying, please contact Claire Bishop at email@example.com to ensure that your organization is a strong fit for the Foundation’s funding strategies. Applications are due May 31, 2019.
