Background of This Program 

Partnership with Georgetown Heath Foundation (GHF)

Since the pandemic started, Chisholm Trail Communities Foundation (CTCF) has annually partnered with Georgetown Health Foundation (GHF) to leverage their thorough vetting process for grantmaking.  This partnership allows Fund Advisors of DAFs at CTCF to have access to the nonprofit grant applications and further support the needs in the community as well as the great work that GHF is doing.

Donation issues cited among local donors

- "There are many needs in the community, how do I determine how to support those with the most need?"
- "Outside of my immediate circles, how can I find those impacted by job losses and the disruption to economic activity?"


This partnership between CTCF and GHF helps to address these concerns of local donors.  Thank you for your support of those in need.
