Fulton – FACE (Fulton Association for Community Enrichment) has grant money available to help local organizations put their vision of Fulton to work in 2013.

2013 will be the start of changes to the FACE grants. The focus in 2013 is "Improving the quality of life for Fulton's children." Organizations with projects that focus on enhancing the lives of young people will be given priority. In 2014, FACE plans to encourage local organizations to work together by offering grants to cooperating groups.

Grants in 2013 are available for up to $1000 for charitable and nonprofit projects. Local organizations interested in being considered for a grant in 2013 should complete a grant request and return it to: FACE, PO Box 292, Fulton, IL 61252. Grant applications can be acquired by contacting Heidi Kolk at hkolk@hotmail.com. All grant applications need to be received by FACE by May 24, 2013.

FACE's mission is to serve as a philanthropic leader, catalyst, and resource to improve the quality of life in the Fulton community. The grants FACE makes are made possible because of the generous donations by area patrons. The success of FACE programs depends on the contributions of many individual citizens. Anyone interested in learning more about how they can support community efforts through FACE should contact Connie Koehn at rhkoehn1@mchsi.com.
FACE is an affiliate of the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend.
