Thanks to YOU!
The Granite Falls Area Community Foundation (GFACF) was founded in 2009 with the encouragement and support of local citizens and the Southwest Initiative Foundation (SWIF). Organized under the umbrella of SWIF, the GFACF is a vehicle for making charitable contributions for the benefit of your community. The assets are invested through SWIF with a local board of directors, providing direction as to how the funds will be used for the exclusive benefit of the Granite Falls area.
The Foundation sets grant-making priorities through regular review of community needs. Grants are made to qualified non-profit organizations that have an interest in building and strengthening our community and the surrounding area.
Your gift will be used to invest in people and projects that will benefit the Granite Falls area. We provide a simple, powerful, and highly personal approach to giving back to the community through the GFACF.
Supporting Local Initiatives Helps Our Community Thrive
The simplest method of giving is to write a personal check to the Granite Falls Area Community Foundation, or visit www.swifoundation.org/donate to give to us online with your credit card. Gifts of all sizes are appreciated and help us to empower the people, businesses and organizations in and around the Granite Falls community.
The Granite Falls Area Community Foundation is organized as an affiliate of the Southwest Initiative Foundation. As our partner, the Southwest Initiative Foundation provides administrative support through gift processing and receipting, grant processing, investment management, and the 501(c)(3) public charity infrastructure necessary for your gifts to receive the highest possible charitable tax deduction.
Southwest Initiative Foundation’s professional staff are also available to assist you and our board with understanding these giving options, and thinking about what’s best for your specific giving situation and goals.
