Grant County Gives 

 

     HISTORY

In 2006, The Grant  County Fund, was established with the Western Kansas Community Foundation (WKCF), as a field of interest fund to serve the philanthropic needs of Grant County.  An Advisory Committee was selected to provide a local presence in Grant County and a channel of communication with The Western Kansas Community Foundation about the needs and opportunities to serve in Grant County.  Since that time, we have participated in 2 successful funding challenges that provided $88,518 in matching funds in addition to the endowments received.  As the organization of the fund developed and additional opportunities were offered through Western Kansas Community Foundation, the fund transitioned to the Grant County Community Foundation (GCCF) in 2010, and became an full affiliate of WKCF.  On June 14, 2017 the Grant County Community Foundation Board of Directors voted to withdraw from its affiliate status and become a stand alone Community Foundation.

In addition, during the last 8 years, a over $550,000 has been granted to organizations in Grant County through the combined efforts of the Grant County Community Foundation and the Western Kansas Community Foundation.
