2019 ACCF
DECEMBER NEWSLETTER
 
 
By yourself or with a team (co-workers, scout troop members, family, sports team, youth groups, classmates, neighbors, etc.) develop a project that would benefit your community. Submit a completed application by December 31, 2019 for review and approval. Encourage everyone you know to vote for your idea! Voting starts on February 14 and ends on February 29, 2020. The projects with the most votes in each of the school district area will be awarded up to a $1,000 grant to make it happen - along with the Wild Card winner.
 
What is the Wild Card?  One project will be a chosen by the ACCF to receive a Love Your Hometown grant. This project will be one that did not receive the most votes in their hometown (school district area), but the ACCF feels em bodies the Love Your Hometown spirit.
