2021 ProjectSupporting local restaurants through the COVID-19 crisis
We launched the FTS Foundation during the COVID-19 pandemic and we wanted to focus on the ongoing impact that COVID-19 had on our local restaurant and service industries. We raised $10,000 with all proceeds being equally distributed to two locally owned Rochester NY restaurants that were most negatively impacted by the pandemic through a qualified application and review process. We are proud to have supported the two grant recipients, The Union Tavern and Native.
As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, your donation will be tax-deductible.
Thank you for supporting our mission!
