Celebrate Good Times, Come On


How does a Community Foundation celebrate good times?  Well, while we're no Cool and the Gang, we get the concept of celebrating all of the good things happening in Grant County thanks to the generosity of our donors.

Each year we have an Annual Meeting—this year it will be May 17th at 6:00 p.m. at Roseburg.  And, it’s now a tradition to give away $5000 to some lucky donor that can be used to start an endowment or add to their favorite endowment…IF they are present that night.

We also honor three Spirit of Philanthropy Award winners for the year.  This year we’ll be celebrating Vectren Foundation for their local work with the Magnificent Se7en Project, Mike McMillen for all he’s done with the United Way, and the Boys and Girls Club for their continued work with the youth of Grant County. 

This year our theme is “Words of Many Thanks”.  Why?  Because we should celebrate all of the donors that we have who make the hundreds of scholarships we give possible, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of dollars that are given toward projects and programming in the Grant County area. We celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays.  Why shouldn’t we celebrate philanthropy and generosity?  Margaret Meade once said, "A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Well, we agree.  So, RSVP today at 662.0065 or at wordsofthanks@comfdn.org to help us celebrate good times.  Come on!
