The local franchise McDonald’s owner / operators across Greater Atlanta have kicked things up a notch this fall and want to help local students reach their full potential through an exclusive grant program.

There will be 12 “Golden Grants” awarded to Atlantans this year. Activities that qualify for a Golden Grant include arts and crafts programs, education initiatives, mentorship and empowerment programs, after-school programs, community service outreach, sporting programs and activities, and more.

“Golden Grants was created to be a resource for teachers and other individuals who are working hard to positively impact the lives and minds of our students,” said Dave Hamilton, a local McDonald’s Owner/Operator. “We’re excited to fund this program as we recognize the importance of education and contributing to communities throughout Greater Atlanta.”

Anyone that fuels the imagination, education and growth of K-12 students can apply for a Greater Atlanta McDonald’s Golden Grant by November 2, 2018.
