Builders

The Community Foundation for Cloud County launched its Builders Campaign in response to the matching grant it received from the second chapter of the Kansas Health Foundation’s Giving Resources to our World (GROW) Healthy Kansas Initiative. GROW II is a $300,000 matching grant challenge over the course of six years in which new gifts for endowment are matched using a two-tiered matching ratio. Some gifts are matched at the rate of 1-to-2, or $1 of match for every $2 of new gift and some are matched at the rate of 1-to-4 or $1 of match for every $4 of new gifts. All gifts of any size are welcome. Permanet plaque recognition will be displayed for all Builder Campaign donations (single gift or a five-year pledge) that equals $5,000 including the match amount.
