Ten at the Top, a group of leaders across the 10 counties of Upstate South Carolina, will be hosting a workshop to guide applicants through the process for applying for Hughes Investments Elevate Upstate Grants.
The workshop will take place on July 16 from 1:30-3:00 p.m. at Park 37, 250 Executive Center Drive in Greenville.
The workshop will include presentations from Mary Anne Goodman about her partnership with Ninety Six Mill Village Association, Rick Green about his partnership with the Upper Savannah Council of Governments, and runners ups from a former year, Coie Switzer and Curtiss Hunter.
Over six years, Hughes Investments has provided $80,000 in funds to 24 communities through Elevate Upstate Grants. The program provides funds to projects that promote a sense of community in the Upstate.
“The Elevate Upstate Grants are for those wishing to bring new life to their communities—a spark, a fresh idea, a new tradition—something that will excite the public and bring people together from all walks of life in a new way,” Phil Hughes, President of Hughes Investments, Inc., said.
The grant period opened June 1, but completed aplications are due by September 16. Two grants of $5,000 will be awarded at the Ten at the Top’s annual Celebrating Successes event in November.
While the workshop is open to the public, advanced registration is requested. You can register at their website.
