GT’s Spring Fundraiser to benefit
Food for Montgomery
It’s time to have some fun while doing good. On May 18th, Giving Together is holding a spring fundraiser to benefit Food for Montgomery – a campaign to help feed the hungry in our area. To join the event on Zoom, just make a donation of $50 or more (voluntary for GT members). Even if you can’t attend, your contribution to Food for Montgomery will be much appreciated.

Giving Together has established a Racial Equity Working Group (REWG), with nearly one-quarter of our members volunteering to participate. This is the first step we are taking to implement a new mission statement goal — advancing racial equity and social justice — which our members adopted unanimously at the 2020 Annual Meeting in late September.
GT members made the following grant awards at the 2020 Annual Meeting:
$25,000 to Identity, an organization serving primarily Latino youth and their families in high poverty areas of Montgomery County. Identity will use GT funds to build long-term capacity as a trauma-informed organization.
$50,000 over two years (2020-2022) to Mercy Health Clinic, an organization of largely volunteer doctors and nurses, that provides free health care to needy adults in Montgomery County. Our funding will enable Mercy to permanently expand their medical and counseling services to adolescents age 13-17.
