Since life as we know it has been turned upside down, the festival is going virtual! Give Grandly! will host an event-day telethon next to the Farmers’ Market that will be live-streamed on the www.givegrandly.org website on May 9th from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm. The event will showcase our 50+ participating non-profits and the good work they do in videos created by the organizations themselves, and there will be music and leaderboard updates to track donations as they are reported.
1. On May 9 a Donation Station will be located at the Farmers Market 901 N. Pope Street from 8:30 am-2:30pm
Donors will have the option to drive up and drop off a donation, they will not need to exit the car or enter the Farmer's Market if they do not wish too.
2. Mail a check made out to the individual organization to the Grant County Community Foundation. Any donations received before May 19 will be counted for Give Grandly!

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.
Join us for a virtual event-day, live-streamed from next to the Farmers’ Market on May 9th from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm. The event will showcase the participating non-profits and the good work they do in videos created by the organizations themselves, and there will be music and leaderboard updates to track donations as they are reported.
Donations can be made online HERE. Or checks can be mailed to the individual non-profits and designated for Give Grandly – their addresses are on the website, along with all kinds of information about the organizations. Check it out to learn more about the causes that interest you.
