Milan now has more money for food, therapy, and education. Monday, the Brissman Foundation distributed grants totaling more than 48-thousand dollars to six nonprofit organizations. 
 
Diane Koster, from the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend, says this is the second year the Brissman Foundation has handed out grants. Grant and Virginia Brissman established the foundation in their will to benefit Milan.
The Brissman Foundation is giving money to Thomas Jefferson Elementary School in Milan, the Children's Therapy Center of the Quad Cities, the Spring Forward Learning Center, and other organizations. 

Koster says for the second year, the foundation will help the Christian Food Pantry in Milan.

Koster says the Brissman Foundation helped the Milan Christian Food Pantry get started.

The foundation gave the Milan Christian Food Pantry 75-hundred dollars this year to continue providing food to families in need. 

Koster says the Brissman Foundation accepts grant applications twice each year. Organizations that benefit Milan can apply for funding online beginning in February.
