Quantum Foundation is giving away $750,000 dollars next Wednesday, November 1 at their annual event, Quantum in the Community. Almost 100 grassroots organizations will be getting money to continue their amazing work here in Palm Beach County.
Organizations provide a range of services, from basic hygiene products to cars for people to get to their jobs. These organizations change lives every day, and are getting much-needed funds to continue their work. These are the groups who don’t receive much attention throughout the year because they have a small staff or rely solely on word-of-mouth. The grants change lives both for the organizations and the people they serve.
