Three different non-profit organizations received grant awards last year through the Hillsborough Rewards Visa Credit Card Program.
More than $3,000 was awarded through the rewards program toward the local organizations dedicated toward serving Hillsborough’s seniors and youths.
Representatives from the organizations were present to accept the ceremonial check presented by former township mayor Gloria McCauley, the Hillsborough Township Committee, and the members of the Credit Card Advisory Committee.
The total amount awarded was $3,594.70. Since the inception of the program, township officials said approximately $80,000 in grants to community based youth, senior and local non-profit organizations have been awarded.
Last year’s grant recipients were the Hillsborough Rocketts, local Boy Scout Troop 489 and Hillsborough/Millstone Municipal Alliance
“The Hillsborough Rewards Visa Credit Card program is a great resource for our local organizations, that qualify, to obtain funding without any expense to our Hillsborough Taxpayers,” McCauley said. “By obtaining and utilizing this rewards Visa credit card, funds will continue to be raised for future grant offerings.”
