Approximately 9,000 people live in Phelps County, and when we move a mountain 853 of us or 9% of the Phelps County population stand shoulder to shoulder to lift a shovel, roll a boulder or blast a trainload of rock. Together we move a mountain in one day in November and erase many obstacles among our citizens when we donate to our favorite nonprofits in Phelps County on the Give2Grow donor platform.
The Phelps County Community Foundation (PCCF) invites every resident of Phelps County to donate any amount to one or more of the nonprofit organizations listed on the Phelps County Community Foundation website www.phelpsfoundation.org
Congratulations Phelps County! In 2015 the lifters donated $688,336 to 60 nonprofit organizations, and each donation was matched with dollars from the foundation. The nonprofits immediately put the dollars to work to enhance Phelps County and provide direct services to families.
In an informal survey a group of donors in Phelps County were asked why they donate to the Phelps County Community Foundation? They said, “Give2Grow unifies the communities by asking everyone to give at a level comfortable for them, and they choose which organizations receive their gift.” The donors added that their trust in the transparency of the Phelps County Community Foundation operations promotes giving. And it feels good to give! See Give to Grow among the essays in the Nebraska Rural Living E-magazine for more information. www.Nebraskaruralliving.com
