About Give Grandly 2018
Give Grandly! is a powerful and dynamic 24-hour, online giving event that connects donors to their community's nonprofits and the causes they believe in. Give Grandly! focuses the southwestern New Mexico communities in Catron, Grant, Hidalgo and Luna Counties on the value of local philanthropic giving, as well as community engagement. Community members are given the chance to find and support an organization(s) whose mission aligns with their passion and interest. In our rural southwest we depend on the work of nonprofits to provide services that for-profit companies provide in urban areas. Our very lifestyle here depends on our nonprofits.
Presented by the Southwest New Mexico Non-Profit Coalition (SWNMNPC) and sponsored by the Grant County Community Foundation, Give Grandly! is a one-day giving challenge to raise funds for local causes. Money raised here, stays here.
We have been participating since 2014, and every year our communities have exceeded our greatest expectations. Donations have totaled more than $350,000 over the past 4 years - our goal this year is to reach $500,000 for 5 years! Everyone can be a philanthropist. We're asking the community to get behind our effort. Large and small gifts combine for big impact. Imagine what we could accomplish if our entire community gave.
On May 5th at 12:01 a.m., this website will begin accepting donations for dozens of area nonprofits and causes - for one day only, closing at 11:59 p.m. Between now and then, have a look at the list of our local nonprofits and start deciding which one(s) fit your passion.
You can also join us in person at the opening day of Farmers' Market in Silver City. Nonprofit volunteers will have booths, can accept donations, and can fill you in on the good work they do and how you might volunteer. We will be at 7th Street and Bullard from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
BECOME A SPONSOR: You, your business or foundation can participate in Give Grandly! through a donation, offering a matching grant, or becoming a sponsor. A sponsorship enables your company to visibly support a community-wide event that benefits all of us.
