What are the Hughes Investments Elevate Upstate Community Vibrancy Grants?

Ten at the Top, through a funding commitment from Phil Hughes and Hughes Investments Inc., has established the Hughes Investments Elevate Upstate Grants. The purpose of the Elevate Upstate grants is to identify and provide initial funding support for community based programs that promote community and economic vibrancy in local areas across the Upstate. The initiative will award two grants annually with each being for up to $5,000 (total of $10,000 per year for five years) from 2013-2017 to entities including neighborhood associations, civic or community based organizations, non-profit organizations or local governments that are committed to developing and implementing programs designed to increase local vibrancy in communities within the Upstate.

Please visit the Ten at the Top grant webpage for additional information about the grant and to view past winners.
