Making Your Wish: A 20th Anniversary Community Grant Program

The Community Foundation Serving Greeley and Weld County supports a broad range of community organizations and will celebrate its 20th Anniversary in 2017. To mark two decades of partnership with donors and worthy causes, the Foundation is awarding up to 20 grants throughout the county and throughout calendar year 2017. They are our gifts to the community to underwrite events/activities that invite community participation, involvement, and inclusion.
