The Women’s Legacy Fund awarded $31,820 in grants to five organizations at its luncheon on Thursday, focusing on mental health programs with an emphasis on connecting Latinas to services in San Luis Obispo County.

The total amount was the largest awarded in the annual grant program since the inception of the Women’s Legacy Fund, which started 16 years ago “with a small group concerned about women and girls in San Luis Obispo County,” said Heidi McPherson, CEO of The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County.

Over the years, the Women’s Legacy Fund has grown through donations to an endowment of nearly $1 million, held with the foundation, to support programs and organizations that benefit local women and girls.
