FACE Charitable Giving Fund

 
HISTORY
This fund was created to complement its sister-fund, the FACE Community Impact Endowment.  Together, they allow the FACE board more flexibility in the total value of annual grants that can be made across the community.
 
PURPOSE
Especially since FACE is a very young community foundation, the FACE Charitable Giving Fund is critical in providing more money for grants to local charitable groups than its "growing, but still relatively small" endowed sister-fund can generate.  The FACE Charitable Giving Fund is not endowed (is fully spendable as needed), allowing FACE as much latitude as possible in meeting community needs each year.
 
IMPACT
Together with its sister fund, this fund has been able to make an average of 8 grants per year.  Approximately 20 different organizations have benefited so far--some multiple times.  Among them are the schools, library, historical society, windmill area, community center, civic organizations, nursing home, and churches.  Every additional gift to this fund allows more or larger grants to be made to support so much of what makes Fulton a great community.


"It's amazing how something small can become something great. It blossoms from people caring."
