Rhodes thanked the community for its support of the Greene County Community Foundation. “We are proud to support these nonprofit programs that are so vital to the community,” he said. “We are grateful to the many generous individuals and organizations that have supported our work to inspire philanthropy across our community.”
The Greene County Community Foundation is a growing family of philanthropic funds, source of grants for local causes and partner for donors. GCCF was founded in 2004 and is led by a local volunteer advisory board that helps build community assets through the creation of permanent endowments, makes grants and leverages leadership – all for the benefit of Greene County.
The GCCF board advises the Greene County Community Fund, the unrestricted community grantmaking fund, to support local needs. This competitive grants program is held annually. Because advisory board members live and work in Greene County, they can leverage resources to help meet local needs and access opportunities. In addition to Rhodes, board members include: Ray Holloman (vice-president), Randy Davis (secretary-treasurer), Christie Mozingo (immediate past president), Susan Beaman, Faith Bynum, Erika Churchill, Judy Davenport, Laquita Davis, Rick Davis, Vanessa Hardy, Beth Moye, Dora Pasour, Rebecca Pate and Jody Tyson.
The GCCF, through the North Carolina Community Foundation, makes it easy to become a philanthropist, whatever your means or charitable goals. You can open an endowment for your favorite cause at any time – or contribute to an existing fund in any amount. Tax-deductible contributions, made payable to the Greene County Community Foundation, can be mailed to the North Carolina Community Foundation, 3737 Glenwood Ave. Suite 460, Raleigh, NC 27612. Contributions can also be made online at nccommunityfoundation.org.
