Editor's note: the following release was submitted by the Greater Sabetha Community Foundation

(KNZA)--The seventh Give to Grow was a weeklong challenge that resulted in 686 gifts totaling $340,565.48. On top of this total is $73,500 in matching funds that will be added to the nonprofits total in a prorated match. As a result, $414,065.48 was raised to uphold 58 local area charitable organizations.

The event was sponsored by the Greater Sabetha Community Foundation, which is a vehicle for people of all means to make a lasting difference in their local community. All donations are tax deductible and help fund local projects or existing nonprofits.

GSCF was established in 2015 and is operated by a 15-member board of directors. GSCF is an affiliate of Greater Manhattan Community Foundation. GSCF can assist other organizations or people with ideas for community projects as well as help individuals establish donor advised funds which allows a donor to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit and make personal planned giving decisions over time.

The Greater Sabetha Community Foundation is celebrating its seventh anniversary this year. In those seven years, $1,531,036.48 has been donated. Each nonprofit receives 100% of the donations plus matching funds and grants can be distributed upon their request.

GSCF will hold a Community Celebration Gala on January 14 to honor the charitable organizations in the area, celebrate the community and give recognition to honorees who have “Served Sabetha Strong.”

The matching gifts were provided by Ray and Jeannie Bachelor, Kent and Donna Saylor, an anonymous donor, Paul and Betsy Tedman, Ag Partners Coop, United Bank and Trust, Wenger Manufacturing, Edelman- Home Center, agroup of GSCF board members and ambassadors, Morrill and Janes Bank and Rainbow Communications. The impact these donors have on the outcome of Give to Grow is tremendous.
