Osborne Trust grant applications welcomed

       Grant money from the William and Betty Osborne Trust Fund is available for 2012.
       To qualify, an organization must have non-profit status, provide charitable services to the needy within the boundaries of the fund and not receive tax dollars. These boundaries are west of I-25, north to the El Paso County line, south across part of the Broadmoor area and west into Teller County.
       Application forms can be obtained by sending a request to: Advisory Trustees, William and Betty Osborne Trust Fund, P.O. Box 6325, Colorado Springs CO 80934; or by e-mailing a request to m3beatty@aol.com.
       The deadline to request an application is June 29. Completed applications need to be submitted by July 31.
       The advisory trustees, consisting of past presidents of the Garden of the Gods Rotary Club, will review the applications and decide on the recipients and the amounts they will receive later in the year.
       The Osbornes were Westside business owners who set up the fund before they died in the mid-'80s.
