Gratitude for Grand

Our 2021 Fundraiser is drawing near! We are very excited to host our 2nd Annual Gratitude for Grand: Give a High Five for Health virtual fundraiser again this year, and we hope you’ll join us September 22-29! This is an opportunity to support and celebrate the people and organizations in Grand County that help us all to thrive and be healthy year-round, because we are all healthier together.

During last year’s inaugural event, we saw real momentum and an exciting ripple effect of practicing gratitude for others in our community, while raising much-needed funds for our programs and services. With the continuing effects of the pandemic and the wildfires that hurt our community, many people already have their lists ready of those they want to recognize with a High Five award, which in turn supports our cause. Be thinking… Who do YOU know that deserves a High Five?



Not familiar with the Gratitude for Grand event? Here’s how the event works…

This event continues to grow and will help us work to improve the future of our healthcare, provide access, resources and support to all Grand County residents, and advocate for the health of our rural community. Please help spread the word about this event. With generous support of donors, we will continue to advocate for and support the health of all Grand County residents.
