Give Grandly

Download as iCal file


Saturday, May 06, 2023      

Every spring the Give Grandly Coalition, with major support from the Grant County Community Foundation, organizes Give Grandly, its big fundraising marathon for area nonprofits. The annual fundraiser this year is scheduled for Saturday, May 6, 2023.

Funds raised through Give Grandly help nonprofits to stay in operation, reach their goals, and serve our community. With each successive year, more and more organizations have participated and more funds have been raised. In 2022, the community came through in a big way, contributing a total of almost $230,000.00 in donations and matching funds for the 55 participating nonprofits. If we as a community can keep up that kind of giving, the total raised over the nine years of Give Grandly in our corner of New Mexico could reach $1.4 million dollars.

Give Grandly is a powerful and dynamic event that connects donors to their community's nonprofits and the causes they believe in. Give Grandly! Focuses the southwestern New Mexico communities in Catron, Grant, Hidalgo and Luna Counties on the value of local philanthropic giving, as well as community engagement. Nonprofits will get to connect directly with donors and the communities they serve at the in-person event, allowing nonprofits to showcase the work they do in our community in a joyous celebration of charitable giving on Main Street Plaza in Silver City, NM. There will be live music, good food, and activities for the whole family!

Give Grandly is on May 6, 2023 from 9AM to 2PM.
