Michele L. Hart Legacy Fund

The Michele L. Hart Legacy Fund is in memory of the late Michele L. Hart. Hart’s sister, Rebecca “Becky,” established the Fund to support those areas close to Michele’s heart. Becky shared her family’s desire to help people in Vinton County. It was this passion that led her to create a fund to honor her late sister by helping Vinton County residents and making resources available to all.

Nonprofit and public organizations serving Vinton County are invited to apply with a special emphasis on projects and programs directly supporting individuals in the areas of healthcare, domestic violence, and higher education. Grant requests of between $500 and $1,500 will be considered. The next grant round opens in 2024.
