The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has led to a shift in priorities for granting from the Boonville Community Foundation Legacy Fund this calendar year.

Rather than proceed with the customary granting cycle, the board of the Boonville Community Foundation (BCF) made a single, generous relief grant in 2020, but plans to resume the customary cycle for multiple grants in calendar year 2021.

The Boonville R-1 School District was awarded $13,280 from the Legacy Fund to help pay for wi-fi hotspots for Boonville student families that do not have access to broadband. The grant was matched 1:1 with another $13,280 grant from the Community Foundation of Central Missouri (Columbia), for a total award of $26,560.
