The Fayette County Foundation on June 22 hosted its third annual Give Me Five Grant Reception to honor its most recent grant recipients.  The Foundation has awarded more than $200,000 during its last two grant cycles.  The reception recognized the efforts of the Foundation grantees, and also aimed to teach those recipients five things about the Foundation.
