Alabama Power Foundation gives gateway grants to local cities

From: Alabama Power Foundation;

The Alabama Power Foundation has awarded more than $33,000 in Gateway grants to provide materials for signs that greet visitors to cities, towns and communities across the state.

 

This year, the Gateway grant program will help 16 communities welcome visitors and potential new businesses by providing funding to support well-designed entrances. The program helps communities remain beautiful and vibrant.

 

"The Alabama Power Foundation has a goal of strengthening the communities we serve," said John Hudson, president of the Alabama Power Foundation. "Providing an attractive gateway into these communities can help spur economic development and maintain civic pride."

 

Communities benefiting from this year's Gateway grants are:

 

*       Bay Minette

*       Calera

*       County Line

*       Daleville

*       Demopolis

*       Gordo

*       Hayneville

*       Louisville

*       Montgomery

*       Oak Hill

*       Pickensville

*       Prichard

*       Samson

*       Sumter County

*       Vance

*       York

 

In its second year, the Gateway grant program has already impacted more than 30 communities in central and southern Alabama. For more information on Gateway and other grant programs of the Alabama Power Foundation, visit www.alpowercharitablegiving.org<http://www.alpowercharitablegiving.org/>.

 

Each year, the Alabama Power Foundation awards more than 1,000 grants, using non-ratepayer money. Since it was founded in 1989 with an investment by Alabama Power shareholders, the Foundation has given more than $130 million through more than 20,000 grants and scholarships. Its assets exceed $120 million, making it one of the largest corporate foundations in the state.
