The Toney Valley Civic Association was recently awarded a Neighborhood Fund Grant of $9,900 by the Community Foundation For Greater Atlanta. The majority of the grant fund will be used by the 36-year-old non-profit organization to sponsor and support its inaugural Toney Valley Day Festival slated for June 13 on the grounds of Toney Elementary School in Toney Valley.  The homecoming, community celebration and fun festival will feature free health screenings, diverse visual and performing artists, a variety of vendors, a children’s activities tent, DeKalb County departments, courts, public service organizations, voter registration/education, food trucks, prizes and much more.

Additionally, a portion of the Neighborhood Fund Grant will be utilized to provide community coaching to the civic association in the areas of marketing and communications, coalition building, volunteer management and resource development.
