Anytime Give Program

The Sherman County Community Foundation has initiated a funding project called the Anytime Give Program to assist nonprofit groups in Sherman County with community project funding. While our nonprofit organizations are ultimately responsible for their own fund-raising events, the Foundation would like to encourage community projects by increasing the financing of those projects.

Description of Program

A nonprofit organization may participate in the Anytime Give Program for matching funds simply by completing a short application which provides the date(s) of the fund-raising event and the purpose/description of the project for which the money will be raised. The successful applicant is responsible for all aspects of its event and project. The fundraising activity can not have been completed prior to the application submission deadline. Upon completion of the fundraising activity, the organization must submit a statement of funds raised with a copy of a dated bank deposit slip(s) to the Foundation by the end of November. IMPORTANT: The organization must also include proof of acknowledgment of the partnership with the Sherman County Community Foundation in all advertising and publicity of the event and project.
