The Alabama Power Foundation recently awarded the Rural Business Training Center in Demopolis a $10,000 Elevate grant to support the center’s programs. Alabama Power’s Community Relations Manager, Diane Brooker, presented the check to the center’s executive director, Aliquippa Allen.

“This year’s Elevate grants will enhance programs that provide for a more equitable society, as well as support training on issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Marsha Morgan with the foundation’s Community Initiatives team.

“The newly created Leadership Development Program will help nonprofit and public agency leaders build capacity and help increase the effectiveness of their organizations. We are excited to provide this opportunity to our community partners,” Morgan said. “DEI Training grants will support nonprofits in providing DEI certifications for staff members and instructor-led courses on DEI topics for staff and board members.”
