Linn County Board of Supervisors Award $81,000 in Witwer Trust Grants

The Linn County Board of Supervisors has awarded $81,614 in grants from the Linn County Board of Supervisors Witwer Trust Fund to 39 non-profit organizations whose work benefits Linn County residents. The recipients were selected through an annual competitive grant process that began in November. The Board of Supervisors received nearly $175,000 in grant requests.

The Witwer Trust was established by Weaver Witwer, a prominent Cedar Rapids grocer and landowner who died in 1979. Mr. Witwer owned and operated a food processing plant, a number of local farms, and what became known as the Me Too grocery stores.

The Witwer Trust grant cycle begins November 1 of each year. For more information about the Witwer Trust grant program, visit www.linncounty.org/witwer.
