Our Philanthropic Fund grants continued in August with awards totaling $6,000 to the organizations listed below:
• Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation - Georgia Chapter was awarded $5,000 for its Butterfly Fund, which provides emergency financial assistance for families when a child is in treatment for brain cancer. Helping with items such as rent, utilities, gasoline and funeral expenses, the Fund helps maintain the household so parents can focus on their child.
• North Fulton Community Charities received $1,000 for its Family Enrichment Education Center to help build self-sufficiency and prevent homelessness and hunger in our community by providing emergency assistance and enrichment programs. The Philanthropic Fund’s grant will be used for instructional manuals and supplies for North Fulton adults enrolled in four levels of Family Enrichment Education Center English (ESL) classes.
The Delta Community Philanthropic Fund will invest a total of $80,000 throughout 2016 to 17 metro Atlanta non-profit organizations, which support the physical and financial needs of people who live within the communities we serve.
