2023 GREENSPRING GRANT PROGRAM
2022 Greenspring Grant Impact Report
How far does the Greenspring Grant go?
Since our founding, Greenspring has aspired to give back by making meaningful financial and relational investments in our local communities. To further our stewardship efforts and commitment to charitable giving, we created the concept of the Greenspring Grant Program in 2012 to support the mission of local non-profits.
Now this effort is completely employee-run and, each year allows a new team of individuals the rewarding (but very difficult!) task of selecting and awarding monies to organizations doing great work.
To date, our grant program has awarded $550,000. CLICK HERE for the 2023 press release.
