Gallatin Valley Newcomers Club Supports Local Nonprofits

Annual Fundraiser

GVNC members annually raise funds to support local nonprofits, in recognition of the critical services they provide to our community.  Applications are solicited and our membership votes on the organization(s) to receive the funds raised in that year.  In the last 10 years, we have raised and donated over $230,000 through our annual fundraising events.

General information about our Fundraising process:

Each year, applications are received and the membership votes to select which organization will receive the funds raised. The organization receiving the most votes from our membership will receive the proceeds of our fall fundraiser.

Grant Application Submissions for 2023 are now closed. We will be accepting applications again in February 2024.
