CanDoMore Campaign

Grundy Foundation does a lot in our community. And we “CanDoMore”…with your help.

 

The Grundy Foundation operates from an endowment established by Joseph R. Grundy at the time of his death. It was his vision that the Foundation continue the Grundy philanthropic tradition through grantmaking as well through the establishment of the Grundy Museum and Grundy Library, which are both free and open to the public, and continue to serve the community to this day.

 

Today’s endowment provides operating income and prospects for long-term growth, but with the support of the community, our impact can be even greater.

 

Make a donation to the Grundy Foundation and the CanDoMore Campaign.
