Community Grant Giveaway

Is there a specific nonprofit organization in your region that truly shines? A group that seeks to improve the area or make a positive impact through their efforts? Nominate them for consideration of a $7,000 grant.

Great Lakes Energy has teamed up with CoBank, one of it’s lenders, to create a positive impact in your community by awarding three $7,000 grants to local nonprofit organizations.

GLE members are asked to submit the names of 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations to be considered in their region. Once the nomination period is over, submissions will be reviewed, vetted, and approved by GLE. With the approved nominations collected, GLE members will once again be called upon to place their vote and ultimately determine each recipient of the North, Central, and South region grants.

Additional program information can be found on the Community Grant Giveaway Rules and Guidelines page.
