For the fifth year in a row, the Grant County Community Foundation and the Southwest New Mexico Non-Profit Coalition are sponsoring a twenty-four-hour community giving marathon on May 5, 2018, Give Grandly! Give Local! to support 50+ non-profit organizations serving Grant, Luna, Catron and Hidalgo counties. These diverse non-profits cover important gaps in governmental or private sector programs, including health and human services, literacy and work skills, arts and cultural activities, environmental advocacy and animal welfare.

Whatever cause you care most about, May 5th is the best day of the year to give back to the community!

The Give Grandly Celebration will be held on 7th and Bullard Streets, next to the Silver City Farmers’ Market on Saturday, May 5, from 8:30 a.m.- 2:30 p.m. Participating non-profits will have tables with staff and volunteers to highlight their work on behalf of southwest New Mexico, answer your questions, and accept donations by cash, check or credit cards. There will be musical entertainment, and refreshments will be available.

And anyone anywhere will be able to donate online at www.givegrandly.org anytime between 12:01 am and 11:59 pm on May 5.

Since 2014, our communities have exceeded our greatest expectations. Donations have totaled more than $350,000 over the past 4 years. Our goal this year is to reach $500,000 for 5 years. Participants and patrons are encouraged to use the hashtag #5in5 to share the spirit of the 5th annual Give Grandly.

"Everyone can be a philanthropist, no matter how big or small the contribution. We all benefit from the many important services that our area non-profits provide. So we hope you’ll join us on May 5th for Give Grandly! Give Local!" said Barrett Brewer, chair of the Grant County Community Foundation.
