The Katharine Matthies Foundation has awarded nearly $900,000 in grants to benefit nonprofit organizations serving the Lower Naugatuck Valley.
According to Kate Kerchaert, vice president of US Trust for Bank of America, 71 grants were distributed to organizations in Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Derby, Oxford, Seymour and Shelton.
The foundation was established in 1987 following the death of prominent Seymour resident and philanthropist Katharine Matthies. The foundation annually marks Matthies’ spirit of philanthropy by awarding grant money to Valley organizations that meet social and community needs.
Valley Emergency Medical Services Executive Director Robert Pettinella was grateful for the $30,000 grant which will help purchase a new, lifesaving heart monitor/defibrillator.
