Thriving Grant County Fund

Fund Purpose:
To support the programs and projects of Thriving Grant County, Thriving Mill Township collective impact initiative.

Fund Story:
Thriving Grant County, Thriving Mill Township is a supporting organization of the Community Foundation of Grant County. As a supporting organization, Thriving benefits from the administrative oversite provided by the Community Foundation while maintaining its own specific mission—a community-focused organization that addresses the societal issues facing children and families of Mill Township through strengthening community, family well-being, and career readiness. All donations made to Thriving Grant County are channeled through the Community Foundation.

A supporting organization is a sub-category of 501(c)(3) and is considered a public charity in-and-of itself. Its purpose is to support the parent organization.

Thriving supports the Community Foundation by working to make Grant County, specifically Mill Township, a better place to live and work through five focus areas of Early Childhood Education, Food Insecurity, The Mill Township Resource Center, Career Readiness, and Financial Wellness.

The Community Foundation provides support to Thriving by providing guidance and services as well as a grant to provide 50% of our annual funding needs for the next 3 years.

So, to sum it up, a Supporting Organization is just a fancy term for two organizations that are supporting each other to make sure Mill Township and Grant County continues to THRIVE!

As a non-profit organization, Thriving Grant County, Thriving Mill Township still relies on generous donors, like YOU, and grant funding to supporting programming and other needs!
