Papillion Days Beer FestSaturday, Jun 15, 2019 2:00 PM - 12:00 AM
Come out and support the Papillion Community Foundation and all of our important Community programs
Through your assistance and the support of our community partners we are able to host quality events like Papillion Days and Winter Wonderland. These events serve thousands of Papillion residents which help unify and strengthen our community. We also have the honor of continuing to grow and develop the Veteran’s Park Memorial Project. This Blue Star Memorial is an incredible tribute those who have served in the Armed Forces from Sarpy County. It is a place where veterans, their families and the citizens of Papillion and Sarpy County can come to reflect, remember and find peace. It is a huge source of pride for our community and Sarpy County. We were able to launch Pantry for Our Patriots on Veterans Day with Moving Veterans Forward. This project allows us to provide three weeks of groceries as homeless veterans are placed into permanent housing. We have many exciting new projects we are involved in as well – Papillion 150 and our new intern project just to name a few. Supporting local community projects together with Sarpy County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Sarpy - Historical Walking Tour, the historical Boy Scout Cabin restoration project, and the Papillion Downtown Business Association and PLV Media Association helps us cultivate our mission.
The Foundation also gives back to the community providing funds to support local organizations through our grant process. Some of our recent Grant recipients include: Papillion LaVista Arts Network, Sarpy County Backpack Program, Radio Talking Book Service, the Papillion Helmet and Shield Foundation, Moving Veterans Forward, PromiseShip, Papillion LaVista Community Schools Summer Success Program, Titan Band Boosters, PLV Media Academy, Papillion LaVista Community Schools summer programs and many others. We have given out over $95,000 in grant money in the last 5 years.
Since 1997, the Papillion Community Foundation has been working to fulfill its mission of identifying, developing and supporting community programs that enhance the quality of life in Papillion.
