The Masonic Foundation of Utah and La Sal Lodge No. 30 awarded a $1,000 grant check on Nov. 7 to the Youth Garden Project (YGP), marking two decades of support to the Moab non-profit. The award will help fund YGP’s internship program.

The foundation, which has been providing help to nonprofit organizations since 1929, is the charitable arm of the Masonic Grand Lodge of Utah. Each year, the foundation awards approximately $250,000 in scholarships and grants to individuals and organizations in Utah.

Kate Niederehe, YGP’s associate director, said, “The Masonic Foundation of Utah has been very generous in supporting organizations throughout Utah for many years. We are grateful for their long-standing investment in Moab through their support of the Youth Garden Project.”

YGP offers programs for youth aged pre-K through 18 years old and events for all ages on their 1.5-acre garden setting, as well as throughout the community. Programs are funded through donations from individuals, businesses and foundations.

For more information, visit the YGP website at www.youthgardenproject.org.
