The Brunswick Public Foundation said five organizations have received a total of $227,000 in charitable grants from the foundation for 2016.

The recipients are:

  • Alliance for the Great Lakes, which since 1970 has sought to conserve and restore the world's largest freshwater resource
  • American Rivers, which since 1973 has worked to protect wild rivers, restore damaged rivers and conserve clean water for people and nature
  • Fish America, which since 1983 has supported restoring marine and estuary habitat, improving water quality, increasing fish populations and advancing fisheries research. The grant also encompasses support for Vamos A Pescar, an outreach program to the Hispanic community to promote fishing
  • National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, which since its creation by Congress in 1984 has worked with the public and private sectors to protect and restore fish, wildlife, plants and habitats
  • Ocean Conservancy, which since 1972 has educated and empowered citizens to take action on behalf of the oceans.

The foundation, which is governed by a three-member board that meets four or five times a year, also plans to make contributions in the coming weeks to select local United Way organizations.
