ECF hands out Giving Tuesday grant

Based on the interest in the Emporia Community Foundation's Giving Tuesday effort, director Shirley Antes fully anticipates the special grant program will return next year.

 

 

The Community Foundation gave the 500th person to like its Facebook page a $500 grant to give to his charity of choice. Blaine Smith, an Emporia State employee, was the lucky person Friday, choosing Hetlinger Developmental Services for the grant.

The Community Foundation tied the Facebook push to Giving Tuesday, almost doubling its social media following in the process.
