— Whether you’re looking for a local charity to donate toward or a way to gain some funds for a special project for your own nonprofit, Grangeville Community Foundation (GCF) may be the answer for you.

GCF is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization created by the people of Grangeville for the people of Grangeville. GCF’s vision is to “create a vibrant and healthy community for ourselves and for future generations,” the web page reads.

GCF grant cycle to run through Sept. 28

GRANGEVILLE – Grangeville Community Foundation will be accepting grant applications from community nonprofits through Sept. 28. Grant guidelines and applications can be obtained by e-mailing a request to grangevillecommunityfoundation@gmail.com or by calling Jane Spencer at 208-507-0592.

As a community foundation, GCF accepts gifts from Grangeville supporters and makes grants to benefit the community. GCF, in partnership with the Idaho Community Foundation, grows those donations throughout time in an endowment, a permanent community savings account invested to generate income.

GCF takes a percentage of the funds’ earnings and distributes them through a locally controlled grants program.
