GACF 2017 Grants Announced

The Girard Area Community Foundation Grant Awards Banquet for 2017 was held last night, and it was wonderful! Each year this night is so humbling for our Foundation and perfectly displays the community’s support in action. The value brought to our local communities is truly beyond words; just ask the recipients!

This year, we were able to award $35,530 in grants! We are so happy to be able to provide these grants, and we thank each and every donor who has become a part of our Foundation.
