Greene County Foundation to celebrate 25th anniversary July 7

According to a press release issued by the Greene County Foundation (GCF), the agency will mark 25 years of supporting local communities with an ice cream social and open house on Thursday, July 7 from 3 – 6 p.m. at the Foundation’s office at 4513 W St Rd 54 in Bloomfield (at the 4-H Fairgrounds).

Program Manager Katie Stout is very excited to celebrate the past 25 years of accomplishments with donors and community members.

“Without our donors, none of our work would be possible,” she said. “I am very grateful to live in a community with such generous and giving people.”

Community members of all ages are invited to stop by to learn more about the Foundation’s history and how local donors have left a lasting legacy for the communities and organizations they love. New and existing donors will also have the opportunity to take a hot-air balloon ride on-site at the fairgrounds, courtesy of SkyVista Ballooning, weather permitting and first-come, first-served.

The Foundation will match up to $25,000 in donations to its Community Support Fund for 25 days between July 7 and August 1. Donations must be allocated to the Greene County Community Support Fund or one of the 26 other named funds that support the Foundation’s Community Support Grants. These unrestricted funds allow the Foundation to award over $100,000 to grant applicants each spring. Donations of up to $1,000 will be matched per individual or household. If you would like to contribute to the Community Support Fund, you can make a gift through PayPal at
