The Alabama Power Foundation has awarded 14 Elevate Grants to nonprofits across Alabama. The Elevate program empowers organizations by providing funds for community projects, capacity-building workshops and networking opportunities. United Way of Etowah County was top of the list as one of 14 Grant recipients. Emily Sims, United Way’s Success by Six Director, says she couldn’t be happier - the money will be used to increase their reach. Elevate, Elevate, it’s all about Elevation. That is the sentiment of the Area Manager for the Eastern Division of Alabama Power Steve Hilderbrant. He says the grants are intended to help non-profits.
