“Community members far & wide heard about our project and our impact. The Grants in Place opportunity allowed my students to make a difference - while learning about the past, celebrating the present and deepening their connections for the future.”

We can’t do it alone! As a lean grassroots organization, our work requires support from individual donors to sustain our mission. These achievements are only possible with gifts from caring advocates like you.

Thank you for your support - together, we are building a thriving rural future.

Help reach this year’s goal of raising $45,000 for rural education.
