BB&T Fall for Greenville News Conference

BB&T Fall for Greenville board members and event partners presented $46,500 to 12 non-profit organizations that were a part of the Beneficiary Program from the 2018 festival. These organizations strive to assist the local community and were recognized for their efforts to provide much-needed volunteer support that was instrumental in making this year's event a huge success.

Fall for Giving Grant

BB&T Fall for Greenville's mission is to support the local community by giving back. With the continued success of the festival, additional funding will once again be offered through the Fall for Giving grant program. Launched in 2018, Fall for Giving supports local organizations whose programs directly impact the areas of culinary and food, cultural diversity, family and music. In its first year, the program awarded $53,000 to seven local non-profit organizations. Applications will be accepted through March 1. Non-profit organizations that are interested in applying can visit www.fallforgreenville.net/199/Apply-for-a-Grant
