Grandview Community Foundation

How the Foundation Works

The Grandview & District Community Foundation (CF) pools charitable gifts in a capital fund to create a lasting legacy for the future of Grandview and the surrounding area. The money goes to health and medical services, community services, education youth and senior programs, heritage and the environment, recreation and sports, and arts and culture.

The Foundation grows through the generosity of many donors, both large and small. Your individual gift is never spent or "used up". It is preserved along with other donor gifts through an inverted capital fund.

Donations are retained as capital in perpetuity. The interest generated by the fund is used to provide grants to enhance the quality of life in the Grandview Area.

Your contribution can be made in several ways:

  • A gift or pledge of money
  • A bequest in a will
  • A charitable gift in memory of a relative or friend
  • An annual donation

You can designate your gift for the general charitable purposes of the Foundation or designate a particular field of interest. All gifts qualify as deductions for income tax purposes.


The Foundation Board reviews all applications each Spring (April/May) and makes grants available to the qualifying applicants.

If you have questions, please call Jami Turetsky at 204-648-4612.
