In addition to all the traditional ways to show one’s appreciation around Valentines Day, Fulton’s community foundation (the Fulton Association for Community Enrichment—FACE) has another way to do it right now that not only pays tribute but helps Fulton two times over.
First, all donations of at least $25 to FACE’s Community Impact Fund are acknowledged on the LOVE SOMEONE, LOVE FULTON display in the windows of the Masonic Lodge in downtown Fulton (see photo below)—sharing the donor’s love or appreciation with the community at large. Second, all donations will do good within Fulton, building up the fund used to provide grants to local charitable groups which provide so many services throughout Fulton. Third, the D.S. Flikkema Foundation has provided $5,000 in matching funds that will double the impact of each gift received until more than $5,000 in new donations has been received.
FACE is a geographic affiliate of the Quad Cities Community Foundation so online donations can be made through QCCF’s system (tinyurl.com/lovefulton will take donors directly to FACE’s Community Impact Endowment giving page). Donations may also be mailed to FACE, PO Box 292, Fulton IL 61252. If you would like additional information, contact Connie Koehn at 815.589.2646.
