Supporting Kewanna-Union Township Now and Forever!
The Kewanna-Union Township Endowment Fund was created in 2010 to support charitable programs and projects within the Kewanna-Union Township community. Local businesses, residents and supporters of Kewanna-Union Township continue to contribute funds to make these grants possible.

From these contributions, grants are available for people, clubs and organizations that want to do good things for the people of the area. If you have a project that is benefiting the Kewanna-Union Township community, we encourage you to apply for this grant.

Good things can happen for Fulton County through the Women’s Giving Circle!
The Giving Circle draws upon the wisdom and resources of Fulton County women to create a better society. Women participate by making an annual contribution of $120 to the Fulton County Women’s Giving Circle, thereby becoming a voting member.

From these contributions, members of the Giving Circle annually grant to charitable projects for the benefit of Fulton County. Members don’t have to worry about attending regular meetings or extended responsibilities, other than to cast an annual vote for projects they want to see supported.

The Mission of the Women’s Giving Circle is: “to inspire Fulton County women to create a better community.” Below are grants to Kewanna-Union Township area from the Women's Giving Circle
