Funding to upgrade summer camp programming

MFA Oil Foundation Awards Grant to Council

Summer camp programming is getting an upgrade thanks to an area foundation. The MFA Oil Foundation recently awarded a $2,000 grant to the Heart of America Council to assist with replacing reptile and amphibian housing at the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation in Osceola, MO. The MFA Oil Foundation provides support to nonprofit organizations that are working to improve communities. Since it was established in 1998, the MFA Oil Foundation has awarded more than one million dollars in grants.

MFA Oil President and CEO Mark Fenner described the MFA Oil Foundation as “a program that allows our company to give support back to the rural communities that are the foundations of our business.” The grants the Foundation awards help support many youth programs, like Scouting, and organizations active in addressing and solving community problems and improving the quality of life. 

Thank you to the MFA Oil Foundation for their generosity and for helping improve our Scout Reservation for years to come.
