ELKHART -

The Community Foundation of Elkhart County has awarded $1.1 million in Key Initiative Grants to two area organizations. The nonprofit says the funds are awarded to organizations whose work represents the foundation's three priorities: youth development, vibrant community, and quality of life.

The recipients include the Goshen Parks and Recreation Department, which will use the funding for a multi-use pavilion project, and SPA Women's Ministry, which will use its grant for the Building Hope capital campaign.

"These two organizations are great examples of agencies working hard to improve the quality of life and the quality of place of our county," said Jill Sigsbee chairperson of the foundation's Key Initiatives Committee. "We are honored to support their efforts and advance their missions."

The Goshen Parks and Recreation Department will receive $900,000 for the Goshen Millrace Multi-Use Pavilion and Ice Rink, which is scheduled to be complete by December 2019. The facility will be used for junior ice hockey leagues, junior leagues, pickup games, weddings, concerts, and other community events. The foundation's Vibrant Community Committee previously awarded $100,000 for the project.

SPA Women's Ministry in Elkhart will receive $200,000 for its Building Hope capital campaign, which the foundation says will provide a new, larger facility to expand the faith-based residential treatment services for women facing addiction issues. The new facility will allow the organization to offer services to a larger number of women. The foundation's Quality of Life Committee previously awarded $100,000 for the campaign.

The awards represent the end of the Community Foundation's first grant cycle in the 2017-2018 fiscal year.
