Post subject:  Latest Tom E. Dailey Foundation Awards...

I had not yet seen this posted here, so I figured I'd post it directly from the Foundation's Facebook page. You can also find the full list here on their website: http://www.daileyfoundation.org/listofa ... rants.html

Note that I've edited out the non-rail entities, so that we may remain on topic:

We are pleased to announce the following 13 grants totaling $28,695 were awarded at our November 11, 2017 quarterly board meeting. Since 2013, the Foundation has awarded 231 grants totaling $693,706. Our next board meeting is planned for February 3rd. Congratulations to all recipient organizations!
