The SOS fund will be administered by Knox Heritage and will cover Knox County as well as the 15 surrounding counties (Anderson, Blount, Campbell, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Hamblen, Jefferson, Loudon, Monroe, Morgan, Roane, Scott, Sevier, and Union).  Knox Heritage will make all decisions regarding allocation of fund resources and selection of projects.  Applications for SOS grants will be accepted on a rolling schedule throughout the year.  Applications deadlines are quarterly (Last business day of March, June, September & December each year) and are reviewed by a panel of local experts.  For more information about SOS and to download the application, please see the attachments below.

JFG and Reily Foods donated $15,000 to start the SOS fund.  The donation was generated from purchases of JFG Coffee in grocery stores and in restaurants throughout the Knoxville area between August 24 and December 31, 2010.  Also, all proceeds from sales of original light bulbs removed from the JFG sign will be directed to this fund.  Click here to purchase a light bulb.
