FUEL – a Greenville, S.C.-based strategic marketing and branding agency – announced today that it has selected the Barbara Stone Foundation as the FUEL for Good third quarter 2022 grant recipient. Through the grant, FUEL will develop an advertising campaign for the Barbara Stone Foundation to raise awareness about the critical work the Foundation plays in serving the disability community in Greenville County.
“Every day a member of our community acquires a disability, or a family learns of a new diagnosis. These individuals and families need information, resources, opportunities, and support, which is the critical role the Barbara Stone Foundation plays in Greenville County,” said Lara Ceisel, the Foundation’s executive director. “As our population grows, so do the needs of the disability community, and we couldn’t be more excited that FUEL selected us for the grant program to assist with a campaign that will help spread the word about our initiatives to make sure all people with disabilities have the support they need and the opportunity to flourish.”
Launched in January 2020, the FUEL for Good Grant program provides up to $10,000 worth of pro bono services for a local nonprofit each quarter to help the organization with a specific marketing need. FUEL is committed to making a difference in the community and created the FUEL for Good Grant program as a tangible way to give back and help local nonprofits. To date, FUEL has awarded the grant to 10 organizations, all selected by FUEL teammates from more than 100 applications submitted since the launch of the program.
“We were moved by the work the Barbara Stone Foundation has done in our community to support individuals with disabilities,” said Meredith Kinsey, FUEL president and COO. “The FUEL team looks forward to creating an impactful ad campaign to spotlight its mission and signature events and programs in the Upstate.”
