*STAR* is pleased to report two recent major donations to help meet the costs of the Town of Stanardsville’s Phase II streetscape project. On July 12, the Perry Foundation awarded a generous matching grant of $25,000. On July 20, the County EDA agreed to contribute an additional $15,000 for that purpose. Both organizations have previously donated more than $50,000 each toward the required local match for the streetscape project.
*STAR* has undertaken a major fundraising campaign on behalf of the Town to raise the local match for the VDOT grants and the additional funds the Town must provide to meet the increased costs of the streetscape improvements. The local match has been fulfilled, but contributions are still needed to meet the Town’s commitment of $226,000. The direct mail fundraising appeal is here: General Appeal 043021
