Community Foundation Run

The Community Foundation Run, formerly identified as Run for the Money, is an annual giving event sponsored by the Community Foundation of Gaston County.  Local non-profits are invited to participate in order raise funds to support initiatives and programs provided by these organizations, with the opportunity to have these funds matched.  This year marks the eleventh year of the Community Foundation’s Annual Run (Run for the Money)!  In year’s past GRS' Brice Foundation has participated in Run for the Money in order to assist programs and services serving individuals with disabilities throughout the area.  GRS is committed to continuing these efforts in hopes of encouraging the full participation of individuals with disabilities into all aspects of community life.

In previous years, with contributions to Run for the Money the Brice Foundation has been able to assist with providing start-up funds to develop job opportunities for those who face barriers to employment, purchasing a fully accessible van for an organization supporting individuals living in Gaston County and supporting the implementation of a local wellness initiative.

Now, more than ever, your generous contribution is needed and can make a large impact.  Severe cuts have been experienced during the past year and our state’s most vulnerable people are at risk of further reductions in support services.  Run for the Money is a wonderful opportunity to stretch every dollar contributed.  Checks can be written and returned to the Community Foundation, along with a completed donation form. These are available at the Community Foundation or can be found in the Gaston Gazette.
