Community Foundation Awards Grant to GTRC

Thanks to the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro, which has awarded a grant of $3000 to the GTRC to cover part of the expenses for the upcoming Community Dialogue.

To date, our fundraising revenues are as follows:

Grassroots Donations (including benefit concert proceeds): $35,155.13
Andrus Family Fund: $185,000.00
JEHT Foundation: $150,000
Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation: $30,000.00
Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro: $3,000.00
Fenwick Foundation: $1,000.00
Total: $404,155.13

These funds go to support all Commission expenses--personnel, public events (conversations, public hearings, community dialogue), office operations, public outreach, research, documentation, and final report production and distribution.

We are still in need of funds to support our final report production and distribution both in written and multimedia formats. You can support this part of our work by contributing financially through the paypal button on this site (not tax deductible) or by following the instructions here for mailing a check to the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro (tax deductible).
