Grant County Community Foundation
Your Community Foundation
If you want to be a true professional, you will do something outside yourself, something to repair tears in your community, something to make life a little better for people less fortunate than you. That’s what I think a meaningful life is – living for one’s community.
– Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Grant County Community Foundation's mission is to enrich lives through collective action in southwest New Mexico, and Give Grandly is an initiative we are very proud of. As the founder and the primary sponsor of Give Grandly over the past years, our vision, leadership and financial backing made this wonderful day of yearly giving possible. Over the seven years that we have sponsored Give Grandly, we have raised more than $900,000 for local organizations in donations and matching funds. Last year alone we raised almost $222,000. We plan to break the million mark this year.
The Foundation does not take any fees from the dollars raised at Give Grandly--all donations and matching funds go directly to the designated nonprofit.
We hope that you will consider a donation to the Foundation so that many more initiatives like Give Grandly can occur. We too need to keep our lights on and our office running so we can advance philanthropy in our beautiful corner of New Mexico.
