S.C. CUs awarding mini-grants in MADTAG campaign
COLUMBIA, S.C. (7/12/12)--Credit Unions of South Carolina are offering 20 mini-grants to state residents who are making an impact in their communities.

The $100 mini-grants are part of a pilot cooperative campaign called "Make a Difference. Tag, You're It!" (MADTAG). The campaign highlights acts of service and encourages South Carolinians to pass the goodwill along to others, according to WTOC.com (July 11).

The campaign was created under the leadership of the South Carolina Credit Union League Media Committee (News Now Feb. 21)

To apply, interested South Carolina residents must post a message on the MADTAG Facebook page describing how they would use $100 to make a difference in their communities. The post must include specifics on how the $100 would be used and the town where the funds would be used. Posts will be accepted until July 27.

Winners will be announced July 31.

Mini-grant award winners will be directed to a participating credit union in their community to collect their funds.

Winners will be asked to document by photo, video and social media how they used the $100 to make a difference.
