About

On Saturday, May 9, 2020, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., the Give Grandly! Give Local! non-profit fair will be set up in the Main Street Plaza next to the Silver City Farmers’ Market. Most participating non-profits will have tables with staff or volunteers to highlight their work on behalf of southwest New Mexico, accept cash and check donations, and answer questions. Computers will be set up at the fair for donors to make tax-deductible donations online to any and all of the participating non-profits. No amount is too small – it all adds up. An electronic leader board will track donations as they come in. Generous sponsors are matching at least $250 for each organization that reaches that threshold.

There will be musical entertainment and food – lots of it! The community is invited come down to the Big Ditch to enjoy the festivities, learn more about these organizations and donate, if the spirit moves. Or donate online through www.givegrandly.org; starting April 1st you can schedule your donation to take effect May 9th. The website is full of information about all the participating non-profits.

Organizations

Volunteering has a long history in America. From old-time communal barn-raisings and quilting bees to modern food pantries and citizen science projects, it seems to be an engrained American habit to band together, often without pay, to improve our communities. It is striking that our small communities in Grant and neighboring counties support scores of non-profits, most of which depend heavily on volunteers. These groups run food pantries and shelters; rescue animals; provide activities for children; promote literacy; preserve culture; support libraries, museums, schools and the University; grant scholarships; foster economic development; advocate for the environment; maintain trails; preserve historical and archeological sites; and organize community festivals, plays, concerts, lectures, field trips—to name just some of the things they do for the community.
