BENEFITING: GRENADA COUNTY COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Grenada Community Foundation (GCF) works to improve the quality of life for all residents of the greater Grenada area. We build a stronger, more vibrant community by connecting people who care with causes that matter.
Our goal is to serve as a catalyst for positive community change in Grenada and surrounding areas of Grenada County. We are dedicated to attracting capital: human, emotional, intellectual and financial - towards building permanent, sustainable community resources.
GCF seeks to support, strengthen and realize our community's shared vision, now and in the future – and to help create an even Greater Grenada in the process. GCF is working to bring community leaders together in the development and realization of this shared vision – and by:
Building our own endowment for use in strategic grants and community
- Attracting donor-advised funds for deployment in our community…
Providing an umbrella of administrative support for existing and future
community development organizations…
Creating and hosting an environment in which community issues and priorities
can first be identified and discussed, then acted upon – all harmoniously.
We focus in four distinct areas:
- Evaluating and addressing community issues…
- Coordinating the efforts of many community leaders…
- Promoting responsible, effective philanthropy…
- Connecting donors and resources
