Education Grant


ATMC is dedicated to providing communications services that add value to the lives of our customers and the communities we serve. To ensure that our corporate contributions also add value within our communities, we have established a Education Grant. This program came about as a result of a restructuring of ATMC's overall corporate giving plan. The majority of the cooperative's corporate contribution and sponsorship dollars are given directly, through our Education Grant, to the numerous causes and worthwhile organizations that make a positive difference in the lives of local residents.


Our cooperative has always been a good corporate citizen. Over the years, we have generously given hundreds of thousands of dollars in services and financial contributions to a wide scope of community groups and organizations. Our employees have been active as well, helping to uphold the cooperative spirit. The decision was made to establish a Education Grant so that we could directly address specific needs in our community and achieve the greatest benefit for our residents.


  • Grants must be for programs which directly benefit residents in Brunswick County.
  • Grant dollars available to a specific program or group range from $250 to $2500.
  • Funds are disbursed for single-use and must be expended within one year of receipt.
  • Grants are open to educators and charitable/nonprofit organizations providing educational programs in Brunswick County or one in another county which offers a program specifically targeted at and benefiting Brunswick County residents. In the case of an outside organization, 100% of the funds must be used for Brunswick County residents. Education grants are also open to educators and administrators in Columbus County at Guideway Elementary School, Old Dock Elementary School, Nakina Middle School, and South Columbus High School.
  • An organization may not apply for or benefit from a grant twice in one 12-month period.


Grant funds will not be available for the following: religious organizations or activities, political organizations or activities, capital campaigns, individuals, beauty pageants, scholarships; advertising, fraternal organizations, sponsorship of fund-raising events (such as raffles, auctions, walk-a-thons or telethons); general operating funds, payments to individuals for services, endowments and labor organizations. In addition, grants will not be issued to groups or organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, sex, age, disability or status as a protected veteran.


ATMC is currently accepting applications for our 2018 Education grants. We have combined application periods, but will continue to award $35,000 in Smart Connections funds to educators in Brunswick County and areas of Columbus County served by ATMC.

Education grant funds will be awarded in the fall. Applications must be received at ATMC offices by 6:00 PM on February 28th.*

*This is not a postmark deadline. Applications must be received by this date.
