Gallatin Valley Newcomers Club Supports Local Nonprofits
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 10 years, we have raised over $150,000 through our annual fundraising events.
Due to restrictions imposed by COVID last year, we conducted a virtual fundraiser in October 2020, in lieu of our traditional in-person holiday auction. The GVNC board decided to conduct a virtual fundraiser again for 2021. The deadline for applications closed on June 1st. The board will be conducting an electronic vote of the membership to select the one organization which will receive the funds raised this year. The selected organization will be announced in September and the campaign will be conducted over the course of the month of October. We greatly appreciate the support we have received for our fundraisers over the years, and look forward to another successful campaign this fall!
