“Being able to support our community non-profits and their projects is definitely a highlight of our year, we are able to do these grants because our donors truly love making a difference” said GPCF Board President Toni Whealon. Gifts and donations make it possible to add significantly to the permanent endowment, which now totals over $960,000.00. Grants are funded only by the interest earnings from the permanent endowment and are awarded annually.
With the 2021 grant projects off and running, the GPCF continues to put our words into action by inspiring philanthropy, community pride and improvement.
