TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Donations were flowing to many great non-profits in the area Wednesday. That's with the Wabash Valley Community Foundation's Spring Grant Awards.

The foundation gave out $142,000 dollars in grants to 12 deserving non-profits. One of the recipients was the Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra.

Because of this grant, more than 1400 area kids will be exposed to music at a Symphony event on Thursday.

David Bowden of the Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra explains, "To tell them that making music can be a part of their lives. Because many kids don't think it can be. They think they can't afford it. They think that maybe it's not right for them. And, to introduce them to the instruments of the orchestra and say, 'Why don't you try it? Why don't you try making music? It'll change your lives.'"

Some other organizations that received grants are the Council on Domestic Abuse, Crisis Pregnancy Center, and Susie's Place Child Advocacy Center.

Groups who got the money each went through a lengthy application and interview process. Foundation leaders say it's great to be able to give back to the community.
