UMLC Receives Grant from CFWNC

bannerUnion Mills Learning Center was recently awarded $9,800 to be used to replace 24 windows in the main building. Funding for this project was provided by the Janirve SUN grant from the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina. Union Mills Leanring Center has been replacing the building's original windows since the organization began in 2000. After the completion of this project, UMLC will have only 36 windows to replace in the entire building. We will continue to seek funds for the remainder of this project with hopes to complete the project by December 2015. Estimated cost on the remainder of this project is $14,700. If you'd like to make a donation to the UMLC Window Fund, you can do so by clicking "Donate" below.

For a $500 donation, an individual can purchase a window in memory or honor of someone. A plaque is affixed to each new window, forever commemorating the named individual(s).
