“My name is Andrew B., and I would like to express my gratitude to those who considered and approved my grant application. I am now able to move forward with my Eagle Scout project. I was very excited when I received your letter in the mail, and overjoyed, as you were the first source of funding I received. The money will aid me greatly, as this will cover over half of my project cost.”
“I did not want another day to pass without writing to express deep appreciation for the $1,000 grant that FACT awarded to St. Leonard. It was certainly a thrill to receive the news and take a giant step toward the realization of our goal – the purchase of Sit2Stand Trainer. The buzz about the new piece of equipment is already circulating in the classes at our fitness facility! The mission of FACT to make contributions to the wellbeing of communities such as ours is an inspiration. We hope to honor the generosity by paying it forward.”
