While most of our Newcomer activities are opportunities to make friends and participate in activities, we also serve as a philanthropic organization. In light of the restrictions of the Covid 19 pandemic, the GVNC board of directors has decided that we will not have a “live” fundraising activity this year, and will pursue other philanthropic options.
We have proceeded with the grant application process, 4 eligible organizations applied and the membership voted.
Your votes are in and you selected Greater Impact, Inc. to receive donated funds from our first ever virtual fundraiser. Greater Impact’s motto is “to give a hand up to people in their time of need.” The three major missions of Greater Impact are (1) automobile assistance so that people can safely commute to work; (2) housing assistance which includes helping with home repairs and sponsoring The Lindsey House, a sober living home for women in recovery; and (3) financial coaching to help people budget and develop a plan to get out of debt. Greater Impact is a relatively new nonprofit in the Gallatin Valley and our support will help them make an even greater impact in our beautiful community.
Stay tuned for details on our October virtual fund raiser utilizing a “DONATE” button on our web site to support Greater Impact .
In addition we have also arranged for generating funds for our local Food Bank through AmazonSmile. Please continue to support our community businesses by shopping local. However, if you do shop on Amazon, you can still support our community through your purchase.
