Awarded grants

Halton Foundation’s grants

Halton Foundation was founded in 2010 to help people who otherwise could not afford to improve indoor environmental quality. Halton Foundation has awarded its first grant to the Center for Courageous Kids located in Scottsville, Kentucky. The Center is a medical camping facility that provides cost-free summer and weekend camps for seriously ill and disabled children and their families. The Centre was awarded with a 30,000 dollar one time grant.

The grant from the Halton Foundation enables the Center for Courageous Kids to organise a one week summer camp for children with asthma. 

- We are humbled and honored to have been selected to receive the Halton Foundation’s first gift. This support and your desire to incorporate asthma education as another fun component of a child’s summer camp experience is going to produce lifelong benefits.  We look forward to working with you and the Halton Team to provide a great week of camp during the summer of 2011. Thank you again for the support of our program and the seriously ill children we serve, stated Roger F. Murtie, President of the Center for Courageous Kids.

Halton Foundation's second grant was given in 2012 to the Paul Basch Memorial Foundation to help in its Himalayan Stove project in improving heath of people in trans-Himalayan region.

The Himalayan Stove Project is dedicated to improving the health of the people in the trans-Himalayan region. The organisation provides free, clean-burning, highly fuel-efficient cook stoves to families living in the Himalayas who now cook with traditional, rudimentary stoves or over open fire pits inside their homes, consuming excessive amounts of precious fuel and polluting the indoor air to dangerously unhealthy levels.

- We are honored to have been selected by the Halton Foundation as a recipient of their generous grant. We appreciate their acknowledgement of the value of our work, and intend to make them proud of their confidence in us. We believe in the conservation of nature, improving people's health and transforming their lives, one clean cookstove at a time. With the help of wonderful donors like the Halton Foundation we will be able to expand our work in the Trans Himalayan Region, said George Basch from Himalayan Stove Project.
