FAN receives $10K grant from Waldport-based trust

The Family Access Network (FAN) received a $10,000 grant from the Braemar Charitable Trust to be used toward client funds for disadvantaged children and families in Central Oregon.

Client funds provide short-term, immediate assistance to families in need who are working towards resolving socioeconomic issues they are facing.

“We are so grateful for the $10,000 gift from Braemer Charitable Trust, especially during these difficult days,” said FAN Executive Director, Julie Lyche. “This grant will go a long way to help support our families struggling to make ends meet through the pandemic.”

Braemar Charitable Trust is based out of Waldport, and was organized to contract with, assist, and better prepare charitable organizations to make sound funding decisions and maximize responsible giving in Oregon.

Their funding priorities are education, community service, cultural, youth activities, and historical preservation.

Unique to Central Oregon, FAN began in 1993 and currently employs 26 advocates in 62 public schools (K-12) and early childhood sites across Central Oregon.

The direct placement of FAN advocates within the public schools and early childhood sites allows FAN to effectively reach and connect disadvantaged children and families to essential basic needs.
