Combined with the generous matching funds from the Dane G. Hansen and Patterson Family Foundations, the Community Foundation for Cloud County will grow by over $272,000, therefore enabling us to impact today and transform tomorrow in greater ways than ever before.” ~Brenda Gilliland, Executive Director
