Give Grandly @ Silver City Farmers' Market!

Give Local  - Give Grandly!

Join us at the first farmers' market May 11th, at 8:30 am for our market season kick off and this great event!

Give Grandly-Give Local is part of an annual, nationwide fundraising event that focuses donations to local non-profits in one 24-hour window (12:01 am to 11:59 pm), a giving day. Many state and local community foundations participate as part of their mission to support local nonprofits. They believe that by facilitating and supporting these giving days, they can increase the impact of nonprofits in their communities and foster a local culture of giving.  

New Mexico has participated in Give Grandly since 2014. That year, the effort in Grant County was sponsored by the Grant County Community Foundation (GCCF), and 38 non-profits signed up! GCCF secured a private donation to cover nonprofit registration fees ($40 each) which enabled many small organizations to participate. The community response was overwhelming, generating substantial online and in-person contributions, mostly between $10 and $25. That year, Grant County made history by raising $56,852 in 24 hours with all funds being restriction free. GCCF does not take a percentage so the money raised goes directly to designated nonprofits.

Join us May 11, 2019   Give a little. Give a lot.  Give local. Give Grandly!
