The Albert Haller Foundation is now accepting applications for 2014 funding of local nonprofit agencies providing services to the poor and needy in Clallam County.
Albert Haller was born in Clallam County in 1903 and worked in the logging industry during the era of horses and steam donkeys.
Haller was known as a very competent, careful logger who out-conserved the conservation policies of that era. Albert and his wife were equally thoughtful about investments, saving and investing wisely in land, enabling them to leave an ongoing legacy to the people of Clallam County.
Foundation grants are given annually to charitable organizations in Clallam County, with priority to those organizations providing food, housing, clothing, medical care and other programs that may enrich the lives of the poor and needy in the county.
For 2014, the maximum grant to any organization cannot exceed $14,000.
The United Way of Clallam County serves as advisor to the Haller Foundation’s board of directors in making recommendations for grant funding.
Information on the 2014 application process will be offered at a bidder’s conference scheduled from 10-11 a.m. Friday, June 6, at the Peninsula Behavioral Health multi-purpose room, 118 E. Eighth St., Port Angeles.
Applications are available from the United Way office by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 457-3011.
Completed applications are due to United Way no later than Monday June 30.
