Greenville Federal Credit Union announces major grants program as part of its 50th Anniversary Celebration.

Greenville Federal Credit Union announces Thanks and Giving Grants Program (T&GG) as part of its 50th Anniversary Celebration in 2018. The program was announced to credit union members during their 50th Annual Meeting on March 8. The purpose of T&GG is to identify and provide funding support for community based 501C3 organizations that promote youth, education, community and economic assistance or relief  in local areas across Greenville County. The initiative will award five grants of $10,000 each to non-profit organizations committed to developing and implementing programs designed to improve local prosperity in communities within Greenville County.

 “The credit union received its official charter and opened for business on November 22, 1968. In 2018, that date just so happens to be Thanksgiving day, which is why our Anniversary theme is ‘Celebrating 50 Years with Thanks and Giving.’ From day one the credit union’s mission has been to give back to the Greenville community by providing affordable financial services to the people we serve. It’s the very reason the credit union was founded.” said President Paul Hughes. “The Thanks and Giving Grants program allows us to celebrate our history by making a significant and lasting investment back into the community where we have called home for 50 years.”

Applicants must be located in and do their work within Greenville County. Successful proposals for projects funded by a T&GG should be able to clearly demonstrate how the implementation of their proposed initiative will benefit and support education, improve child welfare, increase community and economic assistance or relief in the local community. A panel representing Greenville Federal Credit Union will review applications and select the five recipients based on a set of criteria established by the T&GG committee. The criteria and application can be found here: www.greenvillefcu.com/thanksandgivinggrant

The deadline for completed applications is September 15, 2018.
