The Altona Community Foundation will hand out $18,250 as part of its fall grant program.

Foundation President Chad Friesen says nine organizations will receive funding for their projects. A total of thirteen grant requests were submitted. In spring, the organization approved $33,800, which brings the total grant amount for 2010 to just over $52,000.

Meanwhile, Friesen says Don Wiebe and Betty Loewen completed their terms on the Foundation's board of directors. Those spots have been filled by Carol Braun of Altona and John Teichroeb from Gretna.

Here is the list of of organizations receiving funding from the Foundation for this fall:

Altona Seniors Centre
West Park School "Wildcat Reading Lounge"
Altona Youth For Christ
Neubergthal Eddie Schmidt House
