 Hughes Investments Elevate Upstate

Grant Workshop 

Since 2013, Hughes Investments has provided more than $70,000 in funds to 24 local communities as part of the ELEVATE UPSTATE Community Vibrancy Grant program. 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. 

Last year’s winners were Ninety Six Movie Night at the Park and the First Annual Charles Townes Art & Technology Experiment. Past winners include public art projects, interactive outdoor education, downtown music, a food truck plaza, and more. The key element is that the proposed initiative will increase community vibrancy and sense of place and benefit the community as a whole.

The 2019 grant period opened on June 1st with an initial interest form due by August 1st and the completed applications due by September 16th. This workshop will guide applicants through the process, with panelists to include past winners. 

Thanks to Hughes Investments for their generous support of these community vibrancy initiatives throughout the Upstate!
