The Owatonna People’s Press recently made a $2,500.00 in-kind donation to the Owatonna Foundation. “We are extremely grateful to the Owatonna People’s Press for their continued support. Not only for their in-kind donation of advertising dollars, but also for the support shown to the Foundation by their editorial staff which helps us to promote our activities, events, and press releases. Their commitment makes it possible for the Foundation to continue its mission of improving the quality of life for present and future generations by supporting Owatonna projects that focus on community, arts, recreation, and education.” said Foundation Executive Coordinator, Laura Resler. The Owatonna Foundation, now in its 59th year of serving the Owatonna community, provides capital grants in Owatonna and its environs.
The Foundation was established in 1957 with the goal of improving the quality of life for present and future generations of Owatonna residents. Since then, the Owatonna Foundation has committed more than $11.75 million dollars in grants to Owatonna projects and annually awards $30,000 in scholarships for both traditional and non-traditional students.
