GLOBALFOUNDRIES – Town of Stillwater Foundation Presents Annual Grants to Local Organizations



The GLOBALFOUNDRIES-Town of Stillwater Foundation has approved its 2020 slate of 21 grants totaling $25,000 benefiting local organizations and community projects. These grants are in addition to the $10,000 grant provided in March of 2020 to the Town of Stillwater, City of Mechanicville Food Pantries and Stillwater School District Backpack Program to provide emergency assistance to local individuals and families in need during the early stages of the pandemic. With this additional round of grants, the Foundation formed by GLOBALFOUNDRIES and the Town of Stillwater in 2011 has placed more than $450,000 into service in the Stillwater community supporting over 135 community, civic, athletic and non-profit organizations.

“The GLOBALFOUNDRIES – Town of Stillwater Foundation is grateful to be able to make available public grant money for community organizations seeking to bring educational opportunities and positive change to the health, safety, and welfare of local residents,” said Debbie Leupold, Board President, GlobalFoundries-Town of Stillwater Foundation. “This year’s awardees represent a variety of local services and programs and add value to our communities.”

The decision-making process was a difficult one, with many worthwhile organizations in Stillwater vying for grant dollars. After careful consideration, the Foundation based award selection on requests that would ultimately meet the needs of a broader community, in regards to access and impact, as well as having lasting value.
