Greenville, SC – Greenville Federal Credit Union announces a call for applications to begin May 1, 2018 for their Thanks and Giving Grants Program (T&GG).  The program was announced to credit union members and the Greenville community 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. 

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 on the credit union’s website. The deadline for completed applications is September 15, 2018. Grant recipients will be announced at the Greenville Federal Credit Union 50th Anniversary Celebration Food Truck Lunch on November 16, 2018.
