Give Your Heart to Your Community
Back by popular request, we are happy to announce the 18th annual “Give Your Heart to Your Community” Valentines Day Project.
Held on Friday, February 12, the event is sponsored by the Fulton County Community Foundation, WROI Radio, and RTC Communications.
Donors make a contribution to a fund of their choice and in return, send their valentine a gift they won’t soon forget! Giving levels begin at $15 and range from a song dedication on WROI, a singing telegram and long stem rose personally delivered, or a display of love for a beloved pet with a Palentine greeting displayed on RTC Communications channel 5 and Facebook.
As an added bonus, any gift given to a Community Fund will be matched $1 for $1 through Lilly Endowment GIFT VI. The Fulton County Community Foundation is eligible for $500,000 in matching funds which will lead to an additional $40,000 in community grants annually. Read about the match and what it can mean to Fulton County.
Order forms are available here to download, or by contacting the Community Foundation at (574) 224-3223.
