Support Your Community  .  .  Support GVNC’s Charitable Mission  .  .   Support CASA/GAL


Gallatin Valley Newcomers Club has a two-fold purpose: social and charitable. While our membership enjoys the social aspects of our club year-round, forging friendships throughout the community, each year we also place special focus on the charitable purpose via a major fundraiser. This year, like last, we will conduct our fundraiser virtually – you will be able to donate online or via mail during the month of October.

This year’s GVNC fundraiser will benefit a very special nonprofit which our membership selected:

CASA/GAL of Gallatin County

CASA (court appointed special advocates) GAL (guardians ad Litem) has volunteers who focus on the child, providing a voice and advocacy for abused and neglected children.  They serve as the eyes and ears for the judge who handles their cases.  CASA also provides enrichment opportunities such as camps, sports opportunities, music and swimming lessons, and helps to meet other needs such as clothing and school supplies.  To learn more about CASA/GAL, visit their website here and their Facebook page here



Our 2021 Campaign Goal:  $15,000 (net of expenses)

$10,595 raised as of 10/24/21

To add some FUN and INTEREST – a little SOMETHING EXTRA this year

A donation up to $99 qualifies you for a drawing for a homemade special:  either 2 jars of Barb Phinney’s homemade mustards or a Sandy LaPointe’s coconut cream tart. YUM!

A donation of $100 or more qualifies you for the drawings for a homemade special as well as one of two entertainment packages.

(NOTE: Donors of over $100 will have their name entered for each $100 (e.g., a $300 donation = 3 chances for a homemade special PLUS 3 chances for an entertainment package. Donors are limited to one prize.)
