A Charitable Gift of Grain

The Community Foundation is excited to plow ahead with introducing the option of a charitable gift of ordinary income property (grain). A gift of grain creates the ability to exclude that portion of income on your tax returns. In order to be IRS compliant, the gift (transfer) of grain must happen before the sale. Donations given locally invest in our community. Your gift of grain will leave a legacy in Grant County that will live on forever!

Before giving a gift of grain, contact your financial adviser or give us a call and we can connect you with a representative.

Community Calendar

The Community Foundation is thrilled to be a part of the launch of a collaborative effort that created the Do Grant County community calendar! This community calendar was established by multiple organizations as an inclusive system to find and submit local events all in one place. Check it out…you’ll be amazed at what all there is to DO in Grant County!

Do Grant County is a website for the public to use in promoting community events and activities. Instead of posting your event to multiple platforms and in various formats, use this resource and search for events of broad interests all in one location.

The calendar is an avenue for the public to use in promoting their own community events (meetings, fundraisers, performances, activities…).  Feel free to browse and submit your own event(s) on the website at
