GRAY — The Danos Foundation is calling for nonprofit organizations to apply for funding through GIVES, the grant-giving portion of the non-profit organization started by Danos in 2017.
The program awards funding to organizations that benefit education, health care, environment or welfare initiatives in the areas where Danos lives or conducts business. The application deadline is Aug. 31.
“Through Danos GIVES and the Danos Foundation, our organization is making a big impact,” Danos owner Mark Danos said in a news release. “Supporting selected non-profits through our grant program allows Danos to solve big challenges in our communities.”
Since the foundation was established in 2017, more than $150,000 has been distributed to organizations throughout Louisiana, Texas and Pennsylvania. The foundation is funded through charitable gifts from Danos employees and supplemented with company funds.
