It is with great excitement that we announce The Welcome to America Project is the recipient of a grant in the amount fo $45,500 from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust. The funds will be used for the purchase of a new box truck.
During her career, Nina Mason Pulliam shared her financial success and business leadership skills with many charities. She was particularly sensitive to human needs, animal welfare and environmental issues. “She had a keen awareness of challenges that face our community and would take great pride in the outstanding work being done by organizations like The Welcome to America Project,” said Carol Schilling, Trustee chairman. “Through her Trust, we continue to build on her legacy which clearly reflects her heart for philanthropy.” The grant to The Welcome to America Project represents one of 23 awarded to nonprofit organizations in Arizona by the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust during the first of two grant cycles this year. Since the Trust began its grant making in 1998, it has awarded more than $121 million to 443 nonprofit organizations in Arizona.
The acquisition of a new truck is one of WTAP’s 2015 strategic initiatives, and the receipt of this grant is a major stamp of approval for our organization. The board and the staff at The Welcome to America Project are grateful to the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust and to all of you who support the work we do. Thank you!
