Whether you are 5 or 95 – there are many ways for all to make a positive difference.


There are many ways to give. As a community foundation, our strength lies in a strong community-based membership. Since forming in 2006, more than 75% of all funds raised to support community-based projects and programs has come from individuals just like you.

Consider joining GGHF today in working to build, bridge and enrich our community.
