BB&T Fall for Greenville News Conference
BB&T Fall for Greenville board members and event partners presented $42,500 to 14 nonprofit organizations from the local community and recognized the efforts of those organizations that committed substantial volunteer hours over the course of the three-day event. These groups were all a part of the BB&T Fall for Greenville Beneficiary Program from the 2017 festival that has been sponsored by Greenville Technical College for the last 5 years. This donation has helped fund numerous projects for these nonprofit groups.
Fall for Giving
BB&T Fall for Greenville's mission is to support the local community by giving back. In order to do this, the festival has expanded its community giving to include a new grant program initiative called Fall for Giving. The program will disperse grants ranging from $1,000 to $20,000 to nonprofit organizations involved in the areas of culinary and food, cultural diversity, family and music. Fall for Giving grant applications will be accepted January 16 through February 28. Nonprofit organizations that are interested in applying can visit www.fallforgreenville.net/grant.
