Fulton County Chamber of Commerce Receives Technology Grant
FCCF awards first grant of 2016

A grant of $4,000 was presented to the Fulton County Chamber of Commerce to upgrade software systems and technology tools to help the Chamber provide a more efficient, effective, and professional experience for their members and the public.

This is the first year that the FCCF has re-worked their granting procedure to be more responsive to the community by eliminating deadlines for many of their applications.

“When seeking grants from the Community Foundation, some organizations were restricted by the time frame of their project, and the deadlines of our applications,” said Brian Johnson, Director of Development at the Fulton County Community Foundation.

“By opening the process throughout the year, we hope to better serve agencies, and encourage them to apply at any time during the year,” Johnson continued.

Deadlines do apply to some Community Foundation applications. The Kewanna-Union Township Grant and the Fulton County Women’s Giving Circle grant applications continue to have a deadline date.

The Fulton County Women’s Giving Circle inspires Fulton County women to create a better community. They make grants in the range of $800 - $2,400. The deadline is April 15, 2016.

A Kewanna-Union Township Grant is especially for programs and projects within the Kewanna-Union Township community. There is $2,500 available and the deadline is May 6, 2016.
