The Union County Arts Council in Union, SC, was recently awarded a $1,000 grant from the Union Community Foundation. The funds will be used to help with UCAC’s general operating expenses.
“We’re very fortunate to have an organization like the Union Community Foundation working to better the lives of the residents of Union,” said UCAC president Bennie Giles. “When we were notified by the foundation’s chairman, Robbie Littlejohn, of our grant it came as a very pleasant surprise. Over the past year we’ve taken on some new projects and tried to expand the services we offer to the Union County community. This award will allow us to continue our efforts in that regard.”
The Union Community Foundation was established to provide continuing resources to assist the Union community in meeting the many needs of its citizens.
“Our foundation relies on gracious donations from individuals within the community,” said Littlejohn. “These individuals have a variety of giving options to support the work of the foundation.”
Some of the ways to help the Union Community Foundation in it’s mission are through donations of cash, appreciated stock, real estate and life insurance; to mention a few. Professionals are used to invest and manage the foundation’s assets and the board is made up of local citizens who know the community and its needs.
These funds will help UCAC continue to provide programs such as “Painting With Coffee”, the “Tuesday Night Artist’s Group”, the UCAC Artist’s Guild, the “UCAC Writer’s Group”, “Jam With Lunch”, “Monday Night Music” and a wide variety of classes and workshops.
