FUEL has awarded Fellow Countrymen the first quarter FUEL for Good grant. The $10,000 marketing grant was established in 2019 in order to help local non-profits achieve their goals and fulfill their vision to positively impact the community.
“Our team is thrilled to have Fellow Countyrmen as our Q1 recipient,” says Warren Griffith, President and CEO of FUEL. “We had some incredible non-profit organizations submit applications for the first grant, making it tough for our team to make a final selection. It’s going to be extremely rewarding to work with Fellow Countrymen and support such a worthy cause and our veterans to whom we owe a great debt.”
Fellow Countrymen’s mission is to end veteran homelessness within the Upstate of South Carolina. The organization currently provides two homes for homeless veterans in Greenville, SC and has housed, assisted, and provided services to almost 800 veterans.
“We are beyond excited and humbled to have been selected for this amazing opportunity,” says David Nardone, Founder of Fellow Countrymen. “This incredible gift is truly a blessing from God. Together with FUEL’s help, we know we can ignite a fire throughout our community to end Veteran homelessness here within the 13 counties of the Upstate.”
Fellow Countrymen plans to utilize the grant to enhance their website and social media presence, as well as to help promote their upcoming fundraiser to help end Veteran homelessness.
Each quarter, FUEL will provide up to $10,000 in marketing services to a selected local non-profit in need of marketing assistance. Applicants are required to be based in Greenville County, hold a valid 501(c)(3) certification, and have an identifiable need for marketing assistance.
