The red portion of our Community Foundation flower represents Fulton County as the Round Barn Capital of the World. The first Fulton County round barn was built in the early 1900s. Soon, the area became known for its round barns. One of these barns has since become the headquarters for the Round Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek. Another historical round barn, originally built in 1924, was restored into the Round Barn Museum. Fulton County is proud of its rich history and works to preserve that history through its round barn sites.
The Fulton County Community Foundation (FCCF) awarded $203,650 in Community Fund grants to local nonprofit organizations in 2017. Grants are made possible through FCCF Community Funds. These endowed funds will continue to grow and support community projects now and forever.
“Fulton County is special because of the people who live here. It’s full of people who care about one another and are willing to work together to try to make things happen to improve our community. I love calling this home because of the friendliness and the small-town atmosphere. I also like that we live in a rural setting and can appreciate the natural beauty of our community.”
Contribute to the seedling fund established in 2014 in memory of Jimmy, which assists charitable programs and projects in Fulton County. A seedling fund is one that is working to grow into a permanent endowment fund.
