The Arc of Greater Boone County receives $6,500 from the Gordon Flesch Charitable Foundation

The Arc of Greater Boone County (The Arc GBC) learned of a new grant opportunity this year thanks to their involvement in the Boone County Chamber of Commerce. The Chambers Executive Director, Diane Schultz, fostered a connection between Heather Bolton from Gordon Flesch Company, Inc. (Gordon Flesch) and Karlie Rudbeck from The Arc GBC. Gordon Flesch is a family owned Business Technology Company that serves the Great Lakes region.

Bolton passed on information to Rudbeck about the Gordon Flesch Charitable Foundation and encouraged The Arc of GBC to apply for a grant. Gordon Flesch believes that businesses can only thrive if the communities that surround them are also thriving. The Gordon Flesch Charitable Foundation is managed entirely by company associates.

After submitting their application, Rudbeck received contact from Tim Ryan from the Foundations Board of Directors. Ryan came out to see operations himself and was able to share additional information about needs at The Arc GBC to the staff at Gordon Flesch.

The Arc GBC is extremely grateful for this donation and plans to use the funds to purchase a utility vehicle to increase efficiency between their work services departments. “We want to encourage other Boone County nonprofits to consider applying to the foundation and get in touch with Gordon Flesch for any business technology needs, said Rudbeck.”
