The Anna+Anton Olson Legacy Fund (TAAOLF) has completed its 2nd annual round of grant awards totaling over $185,000 to 15 community programs, including the new multi-year Emerging Nonprofit grant of $50,000. The Fund was established to honor the legacy of his Swedish grandparents, and the mission of the Fund is to strengthen the lives in the Georgetown, Hutto and Taylor communities through a life cycle of caring.
Larry Olson, TAAOLF founder, stated “Chisholm Trail Communities Foundation has again exceeded my expectations in managing the Fund’s 2022 Grant Cycle from scoring and ranking applicant responses to the issuance of the grant awards. I really appreciated their expanded efforts in notifying our local nonprofit community about the 2022 Fund grant cycle.”
According to Stephen Benold, M.D., chair of the CTCF Board, “Mr. Olson has been an outstanding community partner, and we have worked closely with him over the last 14 months to ensure that we are achieving the most impact with his investment in the focus areas and communities in which his grandparent’s legacy is rooted.” ROCK is honored to be one of the programs awarded with a General Grant that will be used to support our mission to improve independence and life skills in partnership with the horse.
Mr. Olson added, “As TAAOLF makes their annual awards at the beginning of the holiday season, I hope other members of our community will join me in supporting these or other nonprofits with their end-of-year gifts.”
