The Carl B. & Florence E. King Foundation recently awarded a $25,000 grant to (Targeting Our People’s Priorities with Service) Inc.


Annette Dove, TOPPS’ chief executive officer and founder, is grateful that the King Foundation decided to invest into TOPPS’ work, according to a news release. The grant will be used for general operating costs.


“The work of non-profits is crucial to addressing the issues that are faced by our communities,” Dove said. “Non-profits cannot survive without the role of private philanthropy.”


Carl and Florence King began the King Foundation in 1966.


“The giving policies for the foundation have been shaped by the wisdom and compassion of the Kings, who were unabashedly generous during their lives,” according to the release. “They preferred to give without fanfare, and sought to strike a balance between causes that built opportunity in the future and those that ‘put shoes on people’s feet’.”
