The Greene County Community Fund promotes, mobilizes and stimulates change in the lives of family, friends, neighbors and community by providing local, non-profit agencies with financial support derived from donations of citizens within the community.
With every contribution, no matter how big or small, we're able to continue our growth as a community and as thriving individuals. Our donations contribute to causes that range from local support of agencies such as Greene County Boys and Girl's Club to raising aid for college scholarships. It's our hope that you will join our cause in keeping Greene County a place of opportunity.

Our neighborhood thrives when we engage and actively support one another. So join the cause and start getting involved today! With your help, we can continue to make Greene County a wonderful place to live.
