Staying in the Community

One hundred percent of the funds raised for the Grant County Combined Appeal stays in our community area.  Some of the agencies funded through the Grant County Combined Appeal have no other source of funding!  They count entirely on the generosity of caring people like you and me.

Who Does it Help?

The fund was expanded to cover many social areas of the community; youth activities, as risk children and families, those challenged by disease or disability, and special community projects.  Community nonprofit agencies are encouraged to apply for a grant from the Grant County Combined Appeal.
