We asked former Go Big Give donors why they give.

Donating to the Cairo Community Foundation was an easy decision for me to make as I reflected on what this community has meant to our family. Norm and I moved to Cairo 25 years ago and I can’t imagine raising our daughters anywhere else.  Our family has been blessed by this small town in so many ways.  The Foundation is just one example of how Cairo strives to provide for others.

“I give to the Cairo Community Foundation because I know that the money and time that has been invested will come back around and really help the people that live in the Cairo Area. There have been a lot of projects completed in Cairo with the help of the Foundation, many of them would not have gotten off the ground if not for them. Cairo and the surrounding area can be very proud to have such an organization.” ~ Gordy Sorensen

During Go Big Give Cruise Night in Cairo starting at 7pm.  Cairo Community Foundation Board members will be at the Watering Hole to assist you with your gift.

Don’t forget the Vault and the Watering Hole are both sponsoring the Cruise Night and have specials when you show your Go Big Give Cairo Community Foundation receipt.

During Go Big Give the Cairo Community Foundation is asking for gifts to the General Fund.  The general fund supports community grants like the one made to Centura Youth Football.  

Football is an awesome sport and the fellas in this picture love to play.  They needed to update their football helmets so they could continue to safely play the sport they love.  A grant from the Cairo Community Foundation general fund insured that these kids would get to play today and in the future.  If you are donor to the Cairo Community Foundation general fund you play a part in keeping 100 heads safe from injury.  Please consider a gift to the Cairo Community Foundation General Fund during Go Big Give on July 7th.  Give in person at the Vault or go online at http://gobiggive.org.

Go Big Give General Fund

Making a “Go Big Give” gift on July 7th to the Cairo Community Foundation General Fund supports community grants like the one Centura received to add a much needed refrigerator and dishwasher to their science lab.

General funds are extremely important to the Foundation because they fund immediate needs that can’t be funded from restricted funds.  General funds provide the Foundation board the opportunity to say yes to grant applications that are submitted by community members in February and August.  

Say yes to community projects with a gift to the Cairo Community Foundation General Fund on July 7th.

Give online starting June 22nd or make your gift in person at the Vault on July 7th.

What is a GaGa Ball Pit?  That’s what the Cairo Community Foundation board wondered too until they received a grant application explaining what it was and how it would benefit kids in the Cairo Community.  

The Cairo Community Foundation combines Go Big Give Donations with other funds and grants to help projects like GaGa Ball Pits become reality.

Cairo Community Foundation encourages the Cairo community to share their ideas for great community projects during two grant cycles.  The Foundation accepts grant requests in February and August.

Because people “Go Big Give” Gaga Ball Pit dreams come true.

Please consider giving to the Cairo Community Foundation during Go Big Give on July 7th.

Give online or visit Cairo Community Foundation representatives at the Vault on July 7th.

Learn More About Go Big Give

The Cairo Steering Committee led by Anna Rathke hosted a wish list meeting.  From that meeting the committee took on the task to check one wish off the list.  A “Welcome to Cairo” sign.  The team worked with artist Neely Tubbs to generate several designs.  The Cairo community voted and selected Cairo’s first welcome sign design.  The sign is located on the utility building on the East side of Cairo on Highway 2.  Neely has started the painting and hopes to finish soon, weather permitting.  The Cairo Steering Committee is working towards lighting the sign and adding some basic landscaping. 

That’s not all this committee has planned.  They are working on quite a few more wish list items too.

The Cairo Community Foundation is the Cairo Steering Committee’s fiscal agent.  You can make a donation to the Cairo Community Foundation during Go Big Give and indicate the Cairo Steering Committee.

Help the Steering committee make a few more items on the wish list a reality with your Go Big Give Gift.

Giving day is July 7th.  Give online or visit with a Cairo Community Foundation representative at the Vault on July 7th to make your gift.
