Gallatin Valley Newcomers Club Supports Local Nonprofits

Annual Fundraiser

One of the priority missions of the Gallatin Valley Newcomers Club is to support local nonprofits, in recognition of the critical services they provide our community.  Since 2006, GVNC has conducted an annual fundraiser to benefit local nonprofits.  Applications are solicited and the membership votes on the 1 or 2 organizations to receive the funds raised.  In the last 15 years, we have raised and donated over $226,000 through our annual fundraising events.


If you are a local 501(c)(3) organization  interested in applying for a grant from Gallatin Valley Newcomers Club, please see the following letter detailing procedures for applying:  Information Letter for 2022 Grant Applicants  

The deadline for this years application will be June 1, 2022

Support for our Local Food Bank

The Gallatin Valley Newcomers Club is a strong supporter of the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.  In addition to members’ generous contributions of food and money at our monthly coffees and luncheons, we also generate funds for the food bank through AmazonSmile.  We encourage our membership to support our community businesses by shopping locally.  However, when we do shop on Amazon, we still support our community through our purchases.
