Maple syrup season is here and everyone wants that drippy drippy sugar sauce. First Citizens Bank’s Charitable Foundation is awarding the Fossil and Prairie Conservation Foundation $1,000 to make that happen locally.
The money will be used directly to fund the conservation’s purchase of maple syrup production equipment.
This foundation has donated over $6 million to various organizations and people and was created in the 90s.
The website reads: “The Corporation is organized for charitable, religious, educational, and scientific purposes, including, for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations.”
