FAMILY FOUNDATION WILL FUND LOCAL COMMUNITY PROJECTS
Heritage Developer and Wife Establish Nonprofit Foundation
Raleigh, NC – June 20, 2013 – Jan and Andy Ammons established a nonprofit family foundation that will award grants to endeavors seeking to enhance local communities. The Jandy Ammons Foundation, Inc. is now accepting “Letters of Inquiry” for grants to be awarded for 2014 projects.
“We want to join together with other charitable organizations that have a strong volunteer base and a great community project idea but just lack the extra capital to see their project through,” says Jan Ammons. “We hope to help them make a difference in their communities.”
Founded in November 2012, The Jandy Ammons Foundation will concentrate on innovative, project-driven endeavors focused on enhancing wildlife habitats, park settings, educational surroundings, artistic installations or Christian church mission projects. The Foundation received its 501(c)(3) status on February 11, 2013. It’s the realization of a longtime goal for the Raleigh, NC couple. Jan has spent a lifetime in community service and volunteering with the Wake County Public School System and the Town of Wake Forest, while Andy has been developing and building sustainable communities; his current development project is Heritage in Wake Forest and Rolesville, NC.
“We look forward to seeing the Foundation maximize other charitable organizations’ volunteer investment in their communities,” says Gina Teague, the Foundation’s Executive Director.
