The Grand Island Community Foundation specializes in legacy philanthropy. Named funds are established to impact the areas of the community that mean the most to donors, both during and after their lifetime, and provide the opportunity for children or other loved ones to participate in a family legacy. We exist because of the amazing individuals, businesses, organizations and families who have a desire to give back to their community and leave a legacy that will impact lives for many years to come.
